Oil cooler.

I've decided to locate the oil cooler to an "exotic" place because i didn't have enough room to fit it just behind the grill, and also to use the less flexible hoses as possible. (this position also avoid damage risks due to track debris.) So basically it's not about bringing "oil to cold air", but bringing "cold air to oil" (^^.)

The oil cooler is situated in a high pressure area (OEM cockpit ventilation holes), then, hot air exits by a very low pressure area (by the opened front fenders ).

Here we go for some cutting ! 

Enough room this time ?

Let's separate "High pressure zone" from "Low pressure zone" : huhuhuh ! (Of course, there is some thermical isolation foam between all aluminium sheets. )

Still separating areas.

Now, what about some hose fitting ? Sometimes shorter is better (^^.)

All together!

The ventilation holes in the hood have to be finish properly m(_ _)m. Fitting test, the foam is too wide. (-_-')
