Chris Duke: I'm Chris Duke and today I'm going to share a secret with you about how to better protect your engine with Flex-A-Lite's Engine Oil Coolers. Their high quality coolers are the best choice for you to cool down your engine oil. Now why is that Well, stick around and let me show you why.Now before I get into what the coolers are and how they can help your vehicle out, let's first have a quick chat about why you would need one. Now if you push your vehicle harder than the average soccer mom like for racing, tilling, or hauling, or you just live in a hotter climate than most, then an engine oil cooler can help prevent serious problems. Also if you've modified your vehicle for more engine power, larger tires, et cetera, than an auxiliary cooler is a very good idea. Now typically engine oil coolers are needed to I race applications and in heavy towing applications.

These are the most demanding applications and ones that you need to protect the engine oil from getting too hot, which can lead to engine damage.Well, now that you know why you should have one, let me show you the best ones that you can get and why they are the best in the industry. They feature a modern design and are thicker than transmission coolers because oil viscosity is typically higher, resulting in thicker oil. To minimize a little pressure drop, Flex-A-Lite uses one and three quarter inch stack plates in these. The result is nearly 10 times less oil pressure dropped than the typical low cost cooler, inside the engine coolers are places that use a turbulator insert to keep the oil mixed. The turbulators improve the heat rejection of the units, eliminating the possibility of a cool outer layer of oil forming around the tube wall and the hot fluid passing through the middle without receiving significant cooling.The overall design of the plates and the use of turbulators provide nearly four times the heat rejection or cooling capability of a typical low cost cooler.

They're 100% aluminum construction along with a 500 PSI. burst strength makes these very strong. When it comes to cooling your engine in tough environments such as racing or towing, Flex-A-Lite's engine oil coolers provide class-leading cooling to all demanding engine applications. All Flex-A-Lite engine oil coolers come with interchangeable -8, -10, and -12 AN fittings with O-rings. Flex-A-Lite also offers an engine oil cooler with a six inch electric fan for remote cooler applications, another one with a 10 inch electric fan, and a monster with two six inch electric fans.

Flex-A-Lite has been in the performance cooling business for more than 50 years. Their line of engine oil coolers raises the bar considerably.
