Does this Cobb OTS map you're using support those EXACT parts you've installed? If not, you're already heading in the wrong direction.All I have done is a nameless downpipe, invidia N1 cat back, cobb short ram intake, and a turbosmart dual port BOV. Jus very basic. With an OTS cobb map

Agreeed, I was talking more along the lines of the smaller things people overlook when pushing 400+hp when everything is made and tuned for around 305hp from the factory. Its like steroids.... if you never lift, and have smaller, weaker ligaments then introduce 20lbs of muscle at once, the weakest links will bust and cost all the moneys to fix.9 times out of 10, those that modify the oil cooling system are doing so in a bad way.
The oil system isn't thermostatically controlled like coolant -- you want oil to warm up quickly and stay warm during all driving conditions. Over-cooling the oil is a real danger and can cause significant premature wear of internal components.
The EJ never really had oil overheating concerns like the newer FA20. Before slapping on a larger oil cooler, you would be well advised to increase oil capacity first. There are several reputable brands that produce a larger capacity sump.
