Any update?

Is Mr. B selling the flange yet?
I have everything I need to install my oil cooler, but no flange. I dont really want to use the oil filter plug dealio.

No results yet. The manifold and sensors are installed, and just need to be wired. It's been unseasonably cold here since before Christmas so I haven't had much incentive to work on it. We were tentatively planning to take it to the track during the holiday break but temps were just too cold with snow on the ground so the track remained closed. Still hoping we can test it out before she goes into the shop for my winter build, but not sure if we'll manage that...
As for the flange, like Slowbalt said just message Mr. B or PM him on facebook if you're on there. I'm sure he can make one if he doesn't have some already.

He had an unfortunate event occur and seized a motor (oil supply line to turbo burst thankfully at idle).

Hopefully later this summer we'll be able to get some of the data needed.

He did, the engine is back at the shop now. Hopefully he'll be able to start the break-in in a couple weeks.

That sucks... he has so much coin into that engine.
I'm thinking of milling my own adapter... I have a mill but wasn't planning on heliarcing the fittings on.

i think Mr. B has plates you can buy. Does your le5 have a factory oil cooler? None of mine have had one.

I know from experience, even if you have gauges, at full operating temp it takes only 15 seconds to seize an engine at 0 pressure and highway speeds.

I purchased a complete supercharged 2.0 to play with. Missing the oil cooler.
Probably going to sell the supercharger components after rebuilding them then the block separately.
Getting an oil cooler for the 2.4 that installs where the filter is.

It did, I was standing next the engine when it seized at HPR. Hopefully we'll be able to get some logging of it's performance this coming season and maybe some over the winter. The biggest issue was the turbo oil supply line routing that was adding extra heat to the system. Now that he's moved it and shielding it (since thats what died) he should see lower temps at the track, given the added oil cooler it we should be able to crank it up from a 20psi tune to closer to 25psi and see if he can chase down a few more super cars at HPR

I have an extra LSJ oil cooler if you need it.

PM me what you need for it. If I was keeping it I would go remote.
