    I didn't see any search results on this topic so here is my question.

    What is the oil flow rate in GPM through the oil radiator?

    I have the large oem radiator in my little 308 body but it's way too large. Someone recommended a smaller Setrab cooler would work just as well and be more compact so I'm trying to compare what I have to one similar in flow capacity.

    Setrab recommends models based on horsepower with this baseline, "Dry Sump Parameters include: oil flow rate, 8gpm; 20/50 engine oil or similar; 140ºF ITD; 80mph airflow."

    There is a little flap/door that you can close on the 308s to block the air flow. It was for the winter use, does your 308 not have that?

    Thank you for that Vern but the setup is unconventional for my 308. I have a 2.7 M, F355 engine with it’s original oil radiator stuffed in the narrow 308 frame.
    I’m trying to find a compatible oil radiator that is smaller yet just as efficient.

    Sorry about that, I guess I didn’t understand the situation.

    The large radiator hogs most of the fresh air from one door inlet while adding more hot air downstream into the engine bay. I don't have a cooling issue though.

    Vincent, it is a lot of fun and I get the best of the 308 and 355. I don't like Fabspeed's emblem over the X-pipe so that's going to change soon to an inconspicuous one. This video clip reflects the muffler change from Magna Flow to Fabspeed.

    How did you do the installation? Have you got photos of the build?

    I have a lot of pics Tim and some are in the 308 forum from 2017 when we started the project. I didn't do the mechanical transplant, Tim Taylor in Rockwall, TX did it all. I am very happy with his work as well as his continued support when I have a question.
