No need to buy a sandwich plate, it's already got one fitted for the original oil cooler.

Thread sizes might vary but take your sandwich plate and oil cooler to somewhere like Pirtek and they will knock you some lines together there and then.

Not bad on price either from my experience.

Well If I Was To Get A Oilcooler From Rad Tec Tey Do 7rows For 38 And Go Down Pirtek How Much Will They Charge To Make Some Pipes Up
And For Me To Buy A Termostat Would It Be The Same Price Just To Buy One From Cgb
Just Trying To Shave Some Pennys Off a Sum Iv Been Pricing Up
