Hi, when you fitted your mocal oil cooler do you still keep the plastic oil filter housing, so if you fit the oil cooler do you loose somewhere to have an oil filter?

Pete
Hi, with the original take of plate I bought it’s designed around the OEM plastic housing.

I’ve since changed and fitted a FSI oil filter housing which is alloy. And tig welded AN fittings on.

Thanks.

Did your take off plate look like this?




The plastic oil filter housing has an coolant outlet, I've drawn on roughly where it would be, that would have run through the original cooler. How did you blank that outlet and the coolant hose that connects to the old cooler?

Yes exactly that.

Umm I can’t quite remember now. I think I put a blanking end cap on the metal pipe just above it.

My mate has done a quick clip of the golf out on the road if you’re interested



I also took advantage of some Black Friday offers and ordered a coolerworx shifter which should be with me next week.

I have also bought new seats…

Wow! Those are some impressive looking seats. They put my wingback to shame & I bet they're crazy lightweight too!

Got a few hours at the unit yesterday and managed to get the drivers seat mounted.

They hold me in so well. I think down the line I may get the front half of the cage redone - I’ve never been happy with how it turned out and with these seats it’s a bit tricky getting in

Getting more and more jealous of this build, big time...

It's a Custom Cages fabrication isn't it? Interesting you say you're not happy with the front, thought those guys were meant to be the leaders in cage building in the country.

Ahaha thanks man. You would be jealous of the money spent

It’s a garage 24 motorsport built cage.

Something I gorget to mention that I had bought during the Black Friday offer:

Coolerworx pro shifter (top mounted)





Ordered with a red knob too.

Absolute PIA to fit! rear mounting holes didn't line up, crap support from Coolerworx (including the numerous amount of times I had to chase where it was took over a month to come), no instructions (even though advertised with them) Had to make up a plate out of 2.0mm stainless to fit it. Listed on the website as 02M/02J/02Q and to fit many cars. But I think its made for a MK4 golf or similar. Also, no though about the massive hole in the tunnel that would have been left.

Quite fiddly to get set up.





Other than the fitting it works and looks great!

I think if id paid full price as apposed to the BF offer I would be sending it back and getting CAE.
