Being the first one we ever put into production for PERRIN Performance, we made sure that our kit wouldn't be one of those kits that was a bunch of loose parts you needed to figure out how it all goes together. We make it complete, with full instructions, and easy enough that anyone with a few tools could install.
Included with each kit is a heat exchanger that will easily support the thermal needs of keeping your engine oil temps in check, a thermostat controlled oil filter adapter to ensure oil temps warm up quickly, mounting brackets, oil filter spacer, NEW Subaru Oil filter, and -10 pre-assembled oil lines, with -10 AN fittings. Of course some detailed instructions are included. The only special tool you may need is a socket, and an extra QT of oil, then the rest of the items are things you may already have in your tool box.
Here is a picture of the oil cooler installed on the engine with a PERRIN cold air intake system in place. The oil cooler is designed that it fits with the OEM intake, and most all aftermarket intakes, including the Vortech Supercharger kit! Routing of the lines is also very simple and works on both BRZ and FR-S models (different headlight passageways). In this picture you can see some of the PERRIN Pyroshield that is covering the oil hose. This is a protective shield for abrasion and wear and tear over time. The PERRIN Pyroshield consists of a fiberglass woven material that has been coated in a thick silicone layer. Silicone provides excellent abrasion resistance as well as the fiber glass creates a strong inner liner that will keep things from wearing through it.
In the above picture you can see the PERRIN heat exchanger mounted to the lower splach guard using some machined aluminum mounting brackets. These provide a strong base for the core to mount to and also add some really cool looks to the front grill area for those who might peak into there. The placement of our core was designed such that other aftermarket intercoolers would still fit behind our core. This is important as we know our biggest customer for this will be Supercharger kit and turbo kit guys.
How Does it Look?
Whenever we make a part it's very important to make that part functional first then secondly make sure it looks really good on the car. We choose to put the PERRIN core in the front of the car and centered in the middle of the grill. This tells other people that you have something really cool going on with your car. We also choose to center it in the grill as apposed to others that push it off to one side. This leads to a much more balance appearance at the front of the car.
The oil lines are hidden and as you can see looks very fitting for the front of the car.
What we have done is learned that oil temp makes a big difference in how consistent your car makes HP. We have learned that your engines oil temps will get out of control if nothing is done about it, which can lead to loss of power or major engine failures. The PERRIN Oil Cooler will keep your temps in check and your HP consistent , along with adding a huge amount of safety margin car. Consider a PERRIN oil cooler to be one of the main building blocks to your BRZ/FR-S build if you value your engine long term life.
