I would use rubber to mount it on to protect it from vibration - ca't do any harm. Summit do a mounting kit (sum-g4990) if thats any help

Re: oil cooler mountjng

as said rubber bushes

on my classic its fitted between the upper and lower cross member behind the front bumper/grill, pretty sure you can fit it in the same position on a new age

Needs to be a very short cooler there.

Be extra doubly sure to protect the oil cooler pipes from heat from the headers and keep a good few inches of spaces between them and the headers and use firesleeve.

Mine is mounted in the pax side inner wing at an angle.

Re: oil cooler mountjng

The problem is the hose take offs - the 90 deg angle bends take up a fair amount of height.

Re: oil cooler mountjng
