Well Hello Pillow. I have tried to call you several times to see whats up.
Most engines regulate the oil pressure at the pump but a VW engine uses the press. relief pistons/springs in the case so if you full flow out of the pump to the filter, cooler, etc, the pressure is unregulated from the pump. A tight fresh engine and 30mm pump pushing 20x50 was too much for the Volvo coolers. they lasted about 20 sec. each.
I found some 90 deg. AN fittings at AeroQuip in Forest Park for $17 ea. with a sealing jam-nut to seal against the cooler. I will have to AN the rest of the system.

With the oil cooling system in a holding pattern I got around to mounting the $30 yard sale MSD Soft Touch. I had no room in the engine bay to mount it so I mounted it on the subwoofer cabinet behind the back seat and routed the wires thru the fire wall with a gromet to seal it off.

I forgot to mention that with the Mazdatrix adapters (never figured out the real manufacturer - Earls or Areoquip) but they are steal and narrow... So I hogged them out to 1/2" myself

True AN seems to be the only way to go even though it adds up $

I usually go to Kennesaw to a place called Fast Lane that specializes in dirt track cars. A mailorder warehouse that carries most all the Aeroquip stuff on the rack.

Dave (or anybody interested) give me a call straight to my cell at 703-609-2642 as I am never home to get any messages.

Take Care,

The AeroQuip Express place in Forest Part is close to me and they make lines, I found the BPT fittings for the Volvo coolers there $10 ea. If anyone needs a set for a Volvo cooler I got some (cheap). The AeroQuip 18mmX1.5 to AN fittings for the RX7 cooler are steel 90 deg. and have a sealing jam nut that seals to the cooler with an "O" ring and packing/washer. They have them in -8 and -10. I just need to save up some $$ to get all the stuff. They have reusable AN hose end fittings with the thread on collar so you can make your own lines and replace the hose if you need to so you only buy the ends once. Let's see, 6 of those, 2 of the 90 deg. 18mm to -10 AN's, 4 3/8 npt to -10 AN's and hope the 1/2 inch WeatherHead hose I have will work with the hose end AN fittings.
I have driven the car twice and have the craving to spank a pimped-out Ricer or 5L Stang like a cheap Ho on Role-Play night, "SMACK"----Who's-Yo-Daddy-----"SMACK"----WHOOOOOOOO's-YO-DAAAAADDY.
Oh.....Uh......Sorry bout that.
Did I mention how hard this engine pulls and how sweet the Dells sound back there, whistling out their tune when you crack the taps open. GRRRRRRRR I want to drive it.

No oil plumbing = No burn-outs = No Role Play Night.

Dave check out the Aeroquip "Push-Loc" line of hoses and fittings. Just as good (for our needs at least) and is less money. Granted every 5 years or so I would recommend replacing the lines as they are rubber (or whatever fancy words they try to make it out to be) inside instead of teflon.

For the record I have seen the teflon core ones start to leak after many years use as well.

You are so close... Just buy the stuff! Credit or home equity or sell a child! Just do it! Burn outs that is

Good Luck!

I am letting it sit for a week or two. My wife started working last week(well school for her new job). It will take a while to build our savings back up and such. We didn't think it would take this long for her to find a good job.
