Are you getting high oil temps? I\'ve always found the factory font mount oil cooler to work really well. For the fittings you need a hydrolic(sp?) hose fitting specialist as they are high pressure lines. The Mazda fittings are threaded so jubilee need not apply. Here\'s a pic of my old setup. I had a bigger radiator so it was mounted lower than usual. I\'m not sure how you\'d go about mounting that sebring one? Maybe in front of the radiator? You\'ll probably find the Mazda one flows better as it was designed to cool the oil much more than any piston engined oil cooler and it has a bypass valve for when the oil is cold.
