Ill do this while im building my k24a1 since my k20 is garbage now
But if so, the water that goes thrue thue pump is not really pumped. So the water by itself should go up, go thrue oil cooler and push the water from block back to the block. It should be very hard for the water that is not pumped.. ?Most likely from the WP through the cooler and back into the block
I have a k24a1 block in my garage. It doesn't have the hole located on the side of the motor, behind the oil filter.ok i confirmed with derek that my k24a1 block looks just like the one pictured. this means i use the s2k part not the prelude part, correct?
The coolant is in the water pump. A passage on one side of the pump allows oil to come in. Heat is exchanged in the water pump. Not in the sandwich plate.Is this mod worth doing? So basically the coolant runs thru that "oil cooler" sandwich thing? Seems like a VERY small area to shed heat?
This is absolutely not correct.The coolant is in the water pump. A passage on one side of the pump allows oil to come in. Heat is exchanged in the water pump. Not in the sandwich plate.
Ok then you're right. It's absolutely not correct. I think you need to check yourself. My statement was that heat is exchanged in the water pump and not in the sandwich plate. You mistook what I said.This is absolutely not correct.
The value of these is consistent oil temps. You won't see any major difference with or with out unless your running a turbo or road racing. You will get a little bit longer oil life with these.
Personally I ran the Honda oil coolers on all the B-series I owned and will do the same on the K's
Actually, the heat is exchanged in the sandwich plate. Coolant flows from the water pump, to the sandwich plate (heat exchanger) and then back into the block. The oil passes through the sandwich plate/oil cooler, into the filter, then back into the block. If you take off one of the lines from the sandwich plate/oil cooler, you will see that there is coolant in it, not oil.The coolant is in the water pump. A passage on one side of the pump allows oil to come in. Heat is exchanged in the water pump. Not in the sandwich plate.
