Default Oil Cooler Recommendation Please.

Can someone recommend which is the best oil cooler and where to purchase for a 540 c.i. with an 871 blower.
Thanks

I got the big one from eddie marine. I installed with permacool t-stat & seems to work perfect. Oil warms up quickly & lowest pressure I have since installing is 70, before sometime after hard running it would go down to 30-40.

I've got a friend with a 540 and 8:71, 850 hp. He had trouble with the oil getting hot and just replumbed the stock one to get cooler water first, no more problem. I think the trans cooler was getting water before the oil cooler, so he switched them.

I used Teague's big coolers on a Top Gun, 540's and ran -12 Areoquip line. Installation turned out excellent. You can get the coolers in pratically any color you want...
