oooooo.... braided line and clean suspension parts. this i can fap to :shock:

on a related note, whats the round black thing under the fender next to the headlight bucket?
just because it's a bad idea, doesn't mean it wont be a good time
I'm guessing oil filter between a front cooler and the engine(lines in the other wheelwell too and what looks like a radiator with a guard in the center).
huh, that's a long way away from the engine to mount an oil cooler. i saw a thing under the bumper and thought maybe it was a light or something.

I've run it that route before. Adds a lot of oil to the system, which I liked the idea of.
huh, im more used to seeing (or not seeing because of mounting location) oil coolers mounted up my the trans with a fan on them. then for more capacity just add a deep sump (which seems to be less of a trend these days)

Thanks for the spot on explanation Jason! :)

Yes, it's a thermostat controlled full flow oil cooling system with the filter located under the passenger side fender.
Back in the 70s it was quite common to mount the oil cooler under the front bumper (over here a least).
Admittedly I wasn't too happy with that eye-catching location...

I already posted a few of the pics below earlier in this thread... I'm a Riechert guy... :D

October 2007 (cont'd)

New front brake parts:
- vented & drilled 5 lug Porsche pattern rotors (Kerscher)
- special "widened" ATE calipers

May be a bit over the top but this system is certified by German TÜV for engine powers up to 200 HP. :shock:
So I'm prepared for some possible motor upgrades in the future. :D
