After talking with Josh, I will be running my fan activation switch (180f activation, 165f turn off) into the hot side (pre coolers) at the factory oil cooler port. This will mimic the fluid temps seen by the sandwich plate which has the same temperature rating for its internal thermostat to bypass the aux cooler. I will use the second port on the oil cooler for temperature monitoring to see what oil temps that the mains/rest of the block actually receive.

Probably a dumb question, but those with auxiliary coolers, are you draining and refilling them at every oil change or just letting that amount of oil remain in the system?

Good Question I was going to ask this as well.

I leave the extra oil in. It's less than half a quart for mine, and I doubt that dilutes the new oil enough to really matter.

I was watching some stuff on the 2020 L5P last night and saw the oil cooler had been significantly redesigned, has anyone looked into retrofitting to older blocks?

You trolling? LOL

Scroll up in this thread, a couple members already did it. They share the parts needed and the results.

My cooler claims to have 47oz capacity. I doubt it'll be a problem because by the time most of us change our oil anyway we haven't used up the additive package. I figure between the lines and everything it should be about 2 quarts (10ft of 0.62 line is is 20oz). As long as your filter does a good job keeping the oil clean I don't see it being a problem. Only oil analysis will tell.

Like Dave said, its all over this thread. Especially back a few pages. It's doable but you've got to trim a heat shield tab on your manifold as well as buy a few 2020 parts to make it fit properly.

my first cooler had a drain so i used it. The current one i dont touch. stacked plate coolers dont like to be constantly torqued on and ive had to replace it once already from it cracking at a plate junction just below a fitting. whole system holds an extra quart and a half and i always change the oil way sooner than needed. when the engine was 100% dry (new), i added 12.5 quarts to hit full after starting and filling everything. after a drain/filter change, i put 11.5 quarts in so there is only an extra quart hidden throughout the engine and cooler.

Gotcha, that was kind of my thought with a good filter. I was trying to do extended intervals on my LB7 then a bearing decided to die and cause elevated copper levels into the oil. New plan is 5k change intervals with Cenpeco S3 15W40 (LINK). May switch to a 5W40 come winter time unless I plug it in.

Sounds good! I've delt with Blaine quite a bit in regards to trans fluids and viscosity etc. I know the S3 has the highest TBN that I've seen besides one or two other companies (I think Amsoil's Heavy Duty Diesel Marine is slightly higher) as well as having an insane additive package.

Haha no, just very new to the party. I mainly browse on my phone, so itís a lot of work to get caught up on a thread as big as this.

Iím even late to looking into the L5P, the new stuff usually doesnít interest me. But I didnít realize nearly everything is different other than cylinder bore spacing and displacement.

James, do you recall what the OD of your threaded adapter is that secures your sandwich plate? Any chance you could be convinced to make another?
