    I recently purchased a oil cooler kit for my 94 prelude, and am just curios if it will hurt me in performance due to looseing oil pressure or not, i know it will keep it cool, but more running around with the oil will cause loss of pressure in my oil, just wondering if i do plan to install this, do i need to upgrade on any other parts in my vehicle?
    thanx

    I don't think you lose pressure because of the oil cooler, yes you run more lines but you also run more oil.

    i was also planning on doing this

    plan on having it come off the back of the block, through the oil cooler, though the turbo to the oil pan

    usually the smaller oil coolers are mounted in either air dam areas on the bottom left/rigth of your bumper (when considering an EG/EJ, even EK's) since it's long I would mount it infront of your radiator.
