You talking about the Boss cooler? It's pretty freaking straightforward and easy. It's a job anybody with patience and common sense can do.Well, where I live the temp gets to 115 pretty regularly; while I'm running super whizbang Amsoil, I still want to be able to get on it without guilt.
Nobody has had it installed by a dealer? Seriously?
But they also said they thought about putting one on. Most likely the bean counters stopped that from happening. It was on the edge that does it HAVE to have it. You have piston coolers that picks up lot of heat fastThe engineers that designed the motor said an oil cooler is only necessary if you're road racing flat out for more than 20 minutes at a time:
2011 Mustang GT Coyote Engine - 5.0 Mustang & Fast Fords
actually they said they only recommend one if you are spending a significant amount of time at WOT and high rpms and that the oil gets way cooled once the revs drop. so yeah unless your car is a frequent track/road racing car it doesn't sound like you need one. the engineers didn't say "we recommend using one if you live in a climate where summers get over XXX degrees"But they also said they thought about putting one on.

might be so but the boss was designed as a track car, the GT was not that is the bottom line.Actually, they said in the 5.0 Mustangs article:
"we didn't want to trade off that low-speed torque because we know that only five percent of Boss 302 customers are ever going to take them to a track day or whatever. A lot of them are only going to be driven on Sundays, gently, and preserved..."
I wish it weren't so - but they're probably right!
Really, why is there a "Brembo Track Package" option with "Track Pack" wheels and stiffer springs on the GT?might be so but the boss was designed as a track car, the GT was not that is the bottom line.
therefore, if your GT is not seeing "track" conditions, it does not need it unlike the boss which is designed as a car specifically for the track.
also keep in mind that that FRPP oil cooler might not go so well with your warranty should something happen. it is not seen as an OEM part to the 2011/12 GT and could be cause for blame. just sayin...
i am aware that you cannot just all of a sudden have the entire warranty voided due to a single part but something that directly affects the engine is flirting with dangerous grounds.
Wouldn't matter... Jozsefsz has the biggest, baddest cruelest hands in the nation... and at a MONSTROUS 270 pounds, and 6'5" in stature..... his victims bones crack just when his is on the way to the poor soul's house, generally across the nation somewhere.... but in the end, he gets lost, can't read the maps... wastes so much gas driving around that he can't afford to get back to his internet connection where all the toughness is manufactured. :worship"I'm also 6'5" and 270 lbs. and could crush a person's bones with my bare hands"
What if the other guy is a 6' 8" 320 lb MMA champ?
