George, thanks for the picture. My ecu and voltage regulator are mounted where you have the cooler, so I need to move the cooler or the ecu That's why I am considering the single radiator. Additionally, the plumbing for one radiator may solve some of my space issues. I do like the overkill of two radiators. Much to think about.

My wiring harness isn't installed yet. It should be waiting on me when I get back in town next weekend. Then I'll have to figure out where to put the ecu and regulator...

Not to beet a dead horse here, but don't all the 600's come from the factory with an water over oil heat exchanger? Seems to me if you can control the water temp, the oil temp will follow.

I agree with Ross, the remote filter and oil cooler only add to number of potential leaks, and failure points.... I think Wiley figured that out :shock:

Ken,
IF you just have to have TWO water radiators then place them on one side and the oil cooler on the other side; Clint has already tried this and it did not help over one radiator.

Chris,
Clint has already tried the MC water oil cooler - it does not work. Clint tried the remote oil filter with big filter, it definitely helps and is worth the very low risk of leaks so both of our cars have remote oil filters AND the Scorpion is planned to have one shortly, too. Our MC engine builder told us back in 2009 that when you enclose the MC drivetrain you must install a big water radiator and a big oil cooler because the MC's were designed to have lots of air flow over them.
Trying new things on the the car is the only way to prove it works or not. Until you try it you do not know for sure.

Jim

So, just remove my right hand radiator and mount it in front of my left hand radiator and fill the right hand space with the oil cooler?

Ken, properly plumbed your car will need 1 radiator and 1 oil cooler. Use a large single pass 2 row cooler and a big oil cooler. Make sure the ducting is sealed. No problems.
