Engine oil cooler orientation

The attached pic shows the engine oil cooler I'm gonna use on my car. My question is : Can I install it with the fittings at the bottom or will I not get correct circulation? The big thing is that it will make for a much easier and neater installation.

It is a pressurized system , it will not matter as far as oil flow. Just be sure that it has good airflow through it. The factory oil cooler on the wife's 04 Tahoe is installed exactly as you describe.

Thanks Vince, glad to hear that. By doing that I can position it so that the elbows point backwards to the engine just below the radiator. Otherwise I would have had to battle with routing the pipes around the radiator to get them to the top of the cooler.

Airflow won't be a problem as the direct airstream through the grille will hit the cooler.

oil cooler

Try to mount the cooler away from the rad. Connect it to the rad support. If you tie wrap it directly to the rad, you will lose some cooling and get heat transfer when you shut the motor off.
