Plumb your intercoolers to dump onto your drives like Kaama did.

I don't think you need them. I have been running them for 5 years without and haven't had any problems. They hold over 4 gallons of oil each.

The manual calls for 9.38 quarts with slight variences due to casting differences. Do you have some sort of external cooler that would account for the difference?
