Would a oil cooler kit be needed?

So my 455 bored 30 over is being put together. The engine came out of a boat and the oil filter had been relocated. Would a oil cooler kit be a good idea since my engine's already setup for the relocation? I've heard that after these engines been bored over they can tend to get hotter than most.

It can never hurt but I doubt it's necessary unless your road racing on a track. A large capacity multi row radiator would be a wiser investment for daily use and likely achieve the extra cooling you will require idling in traffic on a hot day.

The boat had a relocated oil filter so it could changed. Your engine is designed to be cooled by its cooling system. That being said...

What he said about the radiator. If you have an auto trans, make sure THAT has a big oil cooler and that it is plumbed through the radiator. Then you'll be good to go. Do a little research if that doesn't make sense to you.

Long live the 455.

if you are going to use the relocated filter
it will act as a cooler, if put out front, where it can get fresh air
