The cooler itself is light, small, easy to place, and works pretty well...

BUT

The hose clamps refuse to stay tightened over time. Within the first 6 months I had the cooler installed, the clamps at the sandwich plate adapter popped off TWICE! I am quite familiar with working on cars and have NEVER had a hose pop off after being properly tightened. A few weeks after putting the clamp on the second time (I had learned to carry oil and a tool kit in the car at this point), I checked the clamps and they were both loose AGAIN and backing off the barbs. I promptly went to the parts store and got some less cheaply made clamps.

Those worked wonderfully for the next 10000 miles or so... Until the clamp on the inlet of the cooler itself (which I had somehow not thought about when I bought new clamps and never replaced) blew off on the freeway during heavy traffic. This time I was not able to get to the shoulder fast enough and the bottom end seized. My car is currently dripping oil into my driveway while awaiting it's $3000 replacement engine, which, needless to say, will NOT have an oil cooler attached to it. I'll just deal with the increase in temp while carrying a full bike rack up to the mountains.

ALSO, if you are considering purchasing this item (and hopefully a pack of decent hose clamps) be warned that the installation instructions are quite optimistic. Putting this thing in front of your radiator with just a couple foam pads is NOT going to work... I didn't trust my gut with this one and installed it per the instructions. Then it promptly rubbed a hole in my A/C condenser.

After I installed the Hayden 459 engine oil cool it worked well. In operation the top tube of the cooling radiator was too hot to touch very long and the bottom exit tube was noticeably cooler. So it is doing its job.

But I was shocked to find that before installation the cast aluminum adaptor plate that goes between the engine block and the oil filter had machining grit on the interior surfaces. And the threaded holes for the brass nipples that attach the hoses going to the radiator were not cleaned well and again had aluminum particles from the manufacturing process. At that point I spent about an hour cleaning the adaptor plate with gasoline, brushes, paper towels and compressed air. Then just in case "quality control" had infested the rest of the kit, the assortment of nipples, the hose, and the radiator were cleaned.

This evidence in my case tells me that Hayden had no concern for quality on this particular kit. I would have written to them about this, but if they are this far gone so as to produce a product that could introduce engine-damaging grit into the lubrication system then they probably wouldn't have any concern about mere words. Also, a port in the adaptor plate for thermostatically-controlled cold oil flow had a sloppy casting line that partially occluded the hole. I had to grind that out to make the port function as designed. If there were anyone responsible for this particular product, get squared away or practiced up for your next job: "You want fries with that?"

This oil cooler has been in my car for several months now and is working great. It will increase your oil capacity by about a quart though. When the engine is hot and you put your hand up against it it feels quite warm so that must mean it's doing its job.

PROS:
1)relatively cheap
2)easy installation
3)works good

CONS:
1)did not come with mounting spacers, had to get nylon spacers at osh to hold the cooling unit away from the grill. then use zipties to mount it behind the grill.
2)construction of the cooling unit seems non-robust, but should not be a problem since it should be mounted clear of debris and rocks

The good:
Cheap
Low profile
1/2" fittings
Well made adapter

The typical:
I needed a washer to make the adapter pull the sandwich housing against the block snug.
Hose is a little soft, not super heavy duty, but it's good enough.

The bad:
The included hose clamps were not up to par. Cranked down as tight as possible without stripping, they could not hold the hose on the high pressure side. It blew off and wasted several quarts of oil by doing an impression of a gusher.

Final thoughts:
Cools good, flows good, well made kit, overall. Do yourself a favor; get some wider hose clamps that will bite on more than one rib on the ports. Make sure the hoses can't twist or turn even a mm with the clamps on; you should be able to pull on them (HARD) without budging.

The adapter body is poorly finished. Rough edges, aluminum shavings, etc. *Easily cut your hand on it* It requires deburring in a bad way. The OEM packing has this part floating around in the box. No matter how well the seller packs the box you are likely to find minor fin damage on the cooler.

Aside from that the kit is pretty cool.
