PLEASE NOTE: This Oil Cooler Kit has been designed for use in conjunction with the Forge Motorsport front mount intercooler (FMINT500). It will not fit with the OEM intercooler. Forge Motorsport cannot confirm fitment with any other manufacturers’ aftermarket intercooler.
The Forge Motorsport oil cooler kit for the Fiat 500/595/695 uses a custom fabricated oil cooler with a large core dimension of 165(w) x 200(h) x 47mm(d). Although there are lots of universal oil coolers on the market, this oil cooler has been specifically designed to fit perfectly in the Fiats OEM intercoolers location, The oil cooler is manufactured at Forge Motorsport’s HQ in Gloucestershire, England by our highly skilled fabricators and carries a lifetime warranty*.
Sitting in full air flow and mounted correctly with the oil flowing into the top of the oil cooler and exiting though the lower outlet, this avoids any chance of cavitation occurring within the oil cooler. Many people mount their oil coolers incorrectly which in turn stops them from working as well as they could.
The oil filter housing on modern Fiat engines does not allow for the previously common take off plates to fit under the filter and divert oil into an oil cooler mounted elsewhere on the vehicle. Instead they now use an oil to water cooling ‘block’ bolted to the front of the engine, and in many cases an undersized filter or a paper drop in element, which prevents easy fitting of an oil cooler. As many people have found, if the vehicle is tuned or driven hard, oil temperatures can rocket to over 120°C (250°F) being easily achieved, which is close to the point that engine oil starts to break down. Therefore, it is essential to fit a Forge Motorsport oil cooler to your modified Fiat 500.
Forge Motorsport have designed a CNC machined billet adaptor that replaces the oil to water cooling block. Although it still allows coolant to circulate, it more importantly offers two AN-10 take offs which allow fitment of the supplied oil cooler lines between the cooler itself and the Fiats engine oil galleries. In turn, this means oil temperatures can be significantly reduced resulting in an engine that can be worked harder for longer.
The whole oil cooler unit has been designed to use the OEM intercoolers ducting to ensure maximum airflow is achieved creating the most superior oil kit on the market that is 100% plug and play.
Perfect for track and fast road use on any Fiat 500.
