Mishimoto oil cooler my experience

13 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I purchased a mishimoto thermostatic oil cooler kit for my 370z cost me around 900 from car mods australia 

It came in a very neat and fancy box. Everything in its own packaging  All the parts looked of very high quality 

As for installion i had a bit of trouble routing the lines so that they were able to line up with the banjo bolts. For whatever reason i couldn't get the sandwich plate at the same angle as they have it on the instruction video due to the stock oil cooler thing . As i have read sooooo many horror stories about blow outs from the sandwich plate i made sure everything was tigggght! 

I was super paranoid when starting it up after installion. No leaks i done an oil change while i was there with some PENRITE RACING 5 5W30 (loving it so far) .

I went for a few quick drives around the block expecting a leak but no. I went for a redline run thrashing it still all good. 

2 weeks later all is still good. I am really noticing some temp drops! In a traffic jam today barely moving it stayed around 90 degrees normally id expect 100+. The average on the move is around 80-85 . 

So far id recommend it highly!

Yes they all need it even the new one especially if you drive it hard, if your hard- core you will need to get a 34 core oil cooler,power steering oil cooler, 3 layer radiator [if you tract it]..  

Out of the box these cars are junk even though I love them and they are also ascetically pleasing!

Yes agreed. This is really a must do mod. Still no leaks . Still operating as it should.  

Think nissan spent most of their time on the body design.

I've had the same Mishimoto oil cooler on my 2012 (has factory "oil cooler" and I didn't go with a thermostatic plate fitting) for a few years now and all good. No issues on the track either with just it, stock power steering cooler and stock radiator. The Americans seem to not think much of Mishimoto though and go for Setrab brand.

I use Motul 330v 10W/40 oil with a large aftermarket sump and change oil and filter every 5000k's.

Hi Guys,

I know this is an old topic, I'm in Qld and have a 2017 Nismo for the last 6 months

I must say I never intended to buy a 370z but I love this car

I have read a lot of topics on this and was confused reading US forums as there was already a sandwich plate on my car but see the OZ version had this add on make sense now. If I drive my car spirited I'm see temps of 120

A number of people spoke about removing the OEM plate, has anyone done this and blanked off water lines. Does this affect Oil temp gauge

No need to blank off the plate. Just leave it all alone and just add an oil cooler.

I removed the stock cooler when I fitted a 34 row fast intentions oil cooler last year. According to fast intentions the stock water cooled oil cooler will hinder the effects of a front mount air cooled oil cooler. There’s a thread explaining why they say it’s best to remove the stock cooler  when fitting a front mount cooler if you feel like googling it.

      Hi Tony, just saw your post, although it is over 6 months old now. Did you end up getting your roof sorted? If so whereabouts. I own a Roadster, live in Newcastle and am having an issue with the deck lid hitting the roof 5th bow.Still opens and closes fine for now. It appears to be a very common problem as I have following the ongoing US 370z forum on this matter. There is actually a Nissan service bulletin out for this plus others for roof issues. Rodd
