Looks like a 13 row cooler, would be well sized for the street. Depends on the climate where you drive. I use a 19 row cooler that is blocked off while on the street as it over cools in an area thats around 35*C (about 95*F). But on the track it does well.

I have also used the factory oil cooler and it did nothing for me. Don't know how different it is to the TRD version, but looks identical.

We have a thermo valve in the adapter plate so our kit doesn't overcool the oil on the street.

We use the same cooler for both cars. If anyone has a really serious track car you could go a little bigger using all of the same lines and everything, you'd just have to get a little more creative with mounting and ducting. We have at least a couple of customers who run track days in Texas, Arizona, California who have mentioned that their oil temps are fine with the standard cooler in the kit.

I have an Earl's inline thermostat and have checked that it is working. I am happy with mine, but unless people are driving only at the track (somewhere hot) then 13 row will do the job just fine.

So can MWR sandwichr be the standard Mocal, or the thermostatic Mocal plate. The thermostatic plate contains a thermostat that blocks oil flow from the cooler until the oil temperature reaches an ideal operating temp of 180 degrees. This allows the engine to warm up faster and prevents the cooler from excessively cooling the oil in colder weather.

so is thermostatic plate available w/MWR or no.

here is an alternative to MWR but looks the same to me
