In light of what seems to be a pent up demand, we will be producing a new product or two for the Gen-2 Oil Filter Adapters.

This will either be a conversion to turn the Standard OFA into the ACR-Full-Flow type, or perhaps a switchable type to turn the cooler "on or partially off" for maximum A/C.

Please post interest so I can gauge batch size and production time.

I'd like some more information on this if possible.  What is it?  What does it do?

Allows the conversion of a stock Gen-2 Oil Filter Adapter which only flows oil partially through the oil cooler into the ACR version, which flows through the cooler completely. This will drop oil temps, especially on track cars.

The possible selectable version will allow you to select back and forth between a full and partial flow at the flip of a switch. Putting it to partial will run less oil through the cooler, maximizing A/C performance in stop and go traffic.

Non selectable version would still be a 5-minute swap, but would cause the loss of a quart of oil or so. This would effectively be the same "thing" as the ACR Filter Adapter [Non Switchable]

Sounds like a toy for Leslie?  I sent this link out to a couple people that may be interested.

No, this is not an "extension" of any type. The switching type would add a "lever" on the side, but thats it. The standard version would not change dimensions at all.

Dan, so has it already been tested in GenII's?  Street and track?  Which version would you recommend for track cars?

Overheating has been a BIG issue for my car, I get about 15 min. of driving in a session and I have to pit for a quick cool down on temps.  If it's over 80 degrees outside it's like, 'forget tracking it', would be a constant battle to keep the heat down.  I've tried keeping the radiator clean, water wetter and dist. water, anything I can think of!

Was this ever made or wasn't the demand there to be worth the time?

Not a problem.  It's kind of what I figured, but there is no harm in asking.

Indeed. Its a new market unfortunately. People just aren't modding these cars like they used to. It used to be constant development, and customers waiting for new parts, cash in hand. Now you invest a fortune in doing a short run, and end up sitting on product while everyone screams the parts are too expensive.

Its a shame that the market has drifted that way, but I understand it.  Right now I am trying to figure out the inner workings of it and see if its something I can fabricate myself.  Thanks for the advice on the oil leaks on VC, I have a lot of work to do getting acquainted with this car.
