    Perma cool works but the partd are cheap and flimsy. I broke 2 before retiring them permanently. The mocal H adapter is nice but it is cast and can break also. I bought the Earls 501erl from Summit, which is made of solid machined aluminum. My dual adapter is a machined aluminum piece from Amsoil. Now I never worry about casr pieces cracking.

    I couldn't help but notice my perma cool filter mount doesn't have a wrench fitting on the 3/4-16 thread. So finger tight is all you get?

    This seemed the best place to ask a question on full flow oil cooler installation processes.

    Which method for sealing NPT connections is best:: liquid teflon, thread sealer/non-teflon based, or teflon tape(oil grade?)

    I use teflon tape on oil NPT fittings...you can use teflon paste too, but it's messy. Don't use thread sealer on the AN side of the fitting.

    Default Canton oil filter adapter

    Canton oil filter adaptor with straight fittings is out performed permacool with 90 degree fittings . it's bolt on so you can turn it to any direction you want ; save space and better flow . I paid $60.70 + $10. shipping

    <edit IJ> Be aware that there is interference with the Canton adaptor and the E-bay/SSAC Header, there is however enough material in the adaptor to clearance it to fit.

    Quick question - I noticed that some of those thermostats offer both 180 and 200 variants. Any preference for one over the other?

    The 180 is what you want - gives you a bit of a pad for those hard runs ;-)
