I want to retrofit one into my 323, as we think 100F is a balmy day
The cooler is not the issue, but the adapter to the engine
I do not want one of these generic adapters that flows oil through the cooler on start-up , but one that only starts flowing through the cooler upon a certain oil temperature being reached
Where can I get such ?

I suppose the pressure hose I need to plumb into the turbo later on, will come from the oil pressure switch ?
the factory BMW ones are like that. but being from africa, you will find one very easy to get, ever SA built 325i had an oil cooler from the factory
