    The had a tube style cooler on my buggy, it did not cool that well. It was a Derale oil cooler.

    I was researching oil coolers and found out tube style coolers do not do a good job and a radiator style oil coolers work 30% to 40% better at cooling.

    I got a CBR radiator style oil cooler , it made a big improvement in engine temperature. I got the model CBR0051 mini cooler, it is well built.

    The picture is my old tube style oil cooler.

    I happy with the CBR oil cooler, its well built and improved my engine temperature.
    Dealing with the people at CBR was a nightmare they are total ###holes.
    A week after I placed my order, nothing had come. I called them, they said I should of got it and said there was nothing they could do to help find my order. I called UPS they told me the company shipping my part needed to call UPS to have a trace on the package done. I called CBR back they would not do anything, all I was asking for was for them to call UPS so a trace could be done. So I called UPS it took a while he me to get a trace done. Four weeks later I got my oil cooler. CBR put bill for the order on the outside of package so that everyone could read what was in the package and what its price is. I think the order bill being on the outside package was part of the problem , if you print on the outside of the package that it worth $450.00 someone will steal it. They have the brains of doorknob

    I do not know. Maybe some other member may provide information on the effect of larger oil tank compared to a oil cooler
