    Details:
    Are you built and tuned? Are you a track Junkie? Are you both? Keeping the motor in your 2.3L DISI engine as cool as possible is going reduce knock and prolong engine life. Preventing the oil from exceeding normal operating temperatures will extend the life of your oil by reducing temperatures that prematurely break it down and increase engine wear. The OEM oil cooler uses a coolant based heat exchanger to keep the oil cool. Adding the JBR oil cooler will reduce the rise in coolant temperatures often seen when on track or during extreme temperature conditions.

    The JBR Mazdaspeed 3 Oil Cooler Kit employs a 19 row core constructed out of aluminum corrugated-fins & internal tubular plates greatly increasing both thermal efficiency and mechanical strength, so you get the smallest, lightest and more importantly, the most efficient oil cooler package.

    [​IMG]

    Custom length commercial grade -10AN fittings and large ID stainless braided lines are the key to minimizing the pressure drop and making for an easy installation.

    The polished billet aluminum sandwich plate incorporates an 1/8" NPT port for additional gauges and sensors.

    A custom mounting bracket and stainless steel hardware keep the core solidly mounted out front of the radiator maximizing its exposure to incoming airflow resulting in an oil temp reduction of over 28⁰F.

    That is sexy as hell!!!

    The price is not bad since you don't have to fudge around with sourcing the adapter plate, and comes with a decent size core.

    I didnt see it listed, but does this have a thermostat?

    Do you have any pics of this installed? I wanna see because of that damn FMIC warning.

    How long are the braided hoses. Wondering if it will reach the wheelwell.

    The hoses are ~4' and it does not come with a thermostat. We found that the thermostat added no benefit. The oil reached operating temperature so quickly and the thermostat just stays open. It's also a mechanical part with the potential to fail.

    GEN 1 and GEN 2 pics below

    A thought occurred to me this weekend while planning placement.

    What is the added capacity to the running system? Obviously the cooler is made to drain when off, but it looks like you'll need an extra qt while the engine is running?

    More oil is more gooder!

    8qts of oil for a 4 Cyl brings us closer to BMW status.

    The tabs can be removed from the OEM crash bar should you choose to do so.

    Sucks that it will not fit with an Ultimate Racing FMIC. This is a great idea but there most be a way for to have a kit for FMIC

    JBR gets it ;)

    Also love that in the plate there's a fitting to put your oil temp sensor in, although some guys like to run oil temp and pressure and if I'm not mistaken that needs to be 2 fittings.

    If I may why only the one? I assume one reason is one less failure point

    Never be afraid to cut and grind.
