Engine oil cooler on GM SB 350
Hey guys, i was wondering if is a good idea to put an engine oil cooler on a mild built 355 Chevy, i'm obsessed about cam and distributor gear wear so i thought it means more load on them due to the restriction created by the little cooler itself but i also think about advantages, cooler oil ( a little ticker too) but less oxidation and may be more protection, i also noticed a drop on engine oil pressure after the mods i did to the pump to avoid cavitation, so a slightly ticker oil it's not too bad...
I'm asking how much the cooler would change the coolant temp, i believe not that much but that's probably more stable?
I've seen sandwich adapters with thermal switch that opens up oil flow after 180 F, i guess it's a very good thing on the wintertime too...
Any help or opinion is very welcome.
