Engine oil cooler mod

8/25/2013, 1 hour.
I started looking at mounting the engine oil cooler. It is the Airflow Systems 2007-x model. It is slightly larger than stock model and the mounting tabs need to be trimmed for it to fit onto the oil cooler box. The oil cooler box needs to be trimmer as well and have the upper attach tabs removed and placed higher up onto an angle bracket to capture the top mounting holes of the oil cooler. I started working on modifying the oil cooler.
