Trust/GReddy Oil Cooler Kit INSTALLED !!!

Ok. I know I have delayed the installation of the Trust/GReddy Oil Cooler Kit quite bit. Well after dragging my feet around, I finally got it installed.

As mentioned in my previous post, the kit comes with everything you'll need to mount the oil cooler onto the ER34. I sent it to the local speedshop to fix it in for me. What surprises me is the amount of time to actually get the whole kit fitted as per the instruction manual. In total, it took a staggering 3.5 hours just to get it right.

Well since the oils will be leaking out, I took the opportunity to change my engine oil as well. This time round I poured in Royal Purple SAE30 and also changed the engine oil filter (Nissan - Part No. 15208-53J00). By the way, the Royal Purple engine oil comes in 1 quart per bottle (0.946 litres), thus the need for the 6 bottles.

I have not taken the car max-ed out since the install but it is running a whole lot cooler as compared to without the oil cooler. After the installation, I took it up to 165km/h for a short stretch and am surprised that the oil temperature did not even surpass the 90 Degrees Celsius mark.

It would be interesting to see how it fares on one of our DILYSI trips with constant revs on the higher range of the rev meter.

Can't wait for that........

  1. Good job bro! Slowly converting your ER4 babe into a V-Spec ah.

  2. No la bro. How can it be a V-Spec..... just taking care of the engine in our Malaysian heat.

  3. Today I took it up to a constant 180km/h on the highway for a loooong time. The temperature only reaches 90 Degrees Celsius. The oil cooler is superbly doing its job well. :)

  4. Constant temperature ah? Sure worth the investment bro! Good!

  5. Thats good to hear that your greddy oil cooler works well.. wah 180km/h for long time, so u went to ipoh? kekeke..

    EJ, where do u do your mechanical work? In sunway?

  6. Russ, nah, not all the way to Ipoh. Just to Sepang to pick up my rotors from Customs. :)

    The cooler is installed in Sunway but everything else is done in Kinrara by the so called 'Nissan King'.

  7. Nissan King ah? Wow... never her of him. I've heard over puchong side got some good workshops.. must go visit one day. And probably try to find spare bumpers & lights.. keke, not that I hope to crash, but need to be prepared ;)

  8. This guy does a lot of Nissan drift cars. Good chap as well. If you wish can bring you there to take a look.

    As for spare body panels. That's tough to find unless you get chop shops to bring it in for you OR you bring it in yourself.
