BMW E36 Oil Coolers & Oil Cooler Parts

BMW E36 Oil Coolers & Oil Cooler Parts The condition and state of your oil can make or break your day at the track. Oil is working best during a certain temperature range and when exceeded the protective properties of oil will break down. This is especially critical with older, dirty oil. Newer cars with high underhood temperatures are even more at risk. Aside from frequent oil changes and more capacity the best way to keep healthy oil flowing through your engine vitals is with an oil cooler. We offer track-developed oil cooler kits and other accessories aimed at reducing oil temps or making your current setup work safely and more efficiently. An oil cooler will not make your car faster or handle better. It's simply excellent preventative action to avoid costly troubles in the future.

E36 323/325/328/M3 Turner Motorsport Oil Cooler Kit - Stage 2 with Euro Oil Cooler The TMS Stage 2 Oil Cooler Kit takes the benefits of the factory oil cooler and housing in Stage 1 and adds the TMS-exclusive HTP oil lines. This makes it possible to use the factory oil cooler with a supercharger or a racing alternator pulley. This is possible because the oil lines are routed away from the front of the alternator and alternator pulley. The TMS Stage 2 Oil Cooler Kit uses mostly factory BMW parts to maintain the same clean appearance and performance you would expect if it was installed by the factory. The HTP lines (High Temperature Polymer Braided) oil lines are better than a rubber or stainless steel line. They are non-abrasive, unlike stainless lines, so they won’t cut into power steering or coolant hoses. Our Kit works on all US-spec 6-cylinder E36 BMWs with the S52 engine. All components included with the TMS Stage 2 Oil Cooler Kit bolt or clip into place with only a slight modification to the alternator cooling tube (only required on particular models). By providing essential hardware with this kit the final result is a hassle-free installation for you, making this an ideal kit for a street/track car. This kit can be fitted to any US spec 6 cylinder E36 BMW, including M3, 325i, 325is, 328i, 328is, and 323is (sedan, coupe and convertible).

This oil cooler system incorporates the Euro M3 oil filter housing which has ports for the delivery and return lines of the oil cooler. The internal pathways of the filter housing are designed for the oil to flow out of the housing, into the cooler, and then return to the housing. The US housing is not setup for any of this, as the oil just runs straight into the filter and onto the engine. Also, the Euro housing has an integrated thermostat to bypass the cooler at lower temps (who needs cold oil when the engine is cold?). We use the system from the Euro E36 M3, so all parts are guaranteed to fit and look as it would, had the car left the factory with it installed. Our products are engineered to work as a complete system, we do not take shortcuts – no leaks, no fitment problems, and as always superior performance.

Parts included: Original BMW oil cooler (from the Euro E36 M3), TMS custom built HTP oil lines with -10 fittings, 2 AN-10 oil line adaptor kits, a BMW Euro E36 oil filter housing (properly modified to accept the US banjo style fitting of the VAN0S oil line), brackets to mount the cooler to the bottom of the stock radiator (TMS exclusive!), and instructions.

E36 Euro Oil Cooler Mounting Brackets Made in the USA When adding the Euro oil cooler to your E36 you may have noticed there was no provision on the US radiator to mount it. The Euro radiator has integrated hangers for mounting the oil cooler but the US radiator does not. We have come up with these trick aluminum hangers that work perfectly with the US radiator and look factory! No fabrication or modification needed - these bolt to the boss of the Euro oil cooler and slip into existing slots on the radiator.

This item fits the following BMWs when used with the Euro oil cooler:

Rally Road M50 Oil Cooler Cap Kit

Rally Road Productions, Inc. is a team supported by a group of people with great abilities in their area of expertise. From the "web guy" and driving instructor friends, to owners of various machine shops, they have surrounded ourselves with people that can be trusted to create and manufacture quality products. This is the key to ensuring everything that they sell will perform as it was intended. The goal is to increase customer satisfaction and make the customization or performance enhancement of your vehicle a more enjoyable venture.

This oil cooler system is race tested and proven to outflow the euro M3 oil filter housing. Additionally, this particular system uses a sealing mechanism to direct the oil flow through the cooler lines and then through the oil filter.  Other cooler caps do not provide this seal and therefore the external oil coolers and lines act as a "balloon".  The lines and cooler are pressurized, but oil does not flow through them.  Flowing oil means it is being cooled and not just acting as an external reservoir.

Flow testing reveals that the oil cooler cap will outflow the Euro M3 Oil Filter Housing by more than 80% at the same, pressure, RPM, and oil temperature. In the upper RPM range, there is nearly a 100% improvement in flow from the RallyRoad oil cooler cap when compared to the Euro M3 oil filter housing.  This is a massive improvement over OE and is a worthwhile upgrade, especially in engines that see severe duty.

Features:

  • -8AN o-ring ports to provide a leak free fitting without the use of Teflon tape or sealant used by other oil cooler caps.
  • Viton o-rings are used throughout to maintain function and sealing in a high-temperature oil environment.
  • Use of the stock filter cap bolt to reduce cost and simplify installation.
  • An internal sealing mechanism to direct oil flow through the oil cooler and through the filter.
  • 1/8" NPT side port for external oil pressure gauge.

Kit Includes:

  • Oil filter cap with fittings
  • Oil filter sealing ring
  • BMW MANN Oil Filter and gasket

E36 Turner Motorsport Stage 2 Oil Cooler Line Upgrade Made in the USA The TMS E36 Stage 2 Oil Cooler Line Upgrade Kit is an ideal alternative to the factory oil cooler lines, with multiple added benefits. In combination with our TMS AN-10 Oil Line Adaptor Kit (Part # TEN9910200), installing the TMS E36 Stage 2 Oil Cooler Line Upgrade saves you time and money. Unlike factory lines, the TMS E36 Stage 2 Oil Cooler Line Upgrade can work with vehicles equipped with superchargers or racing alternator pulleys. The TMS oil cooler lines now sit safely away from any moving parts like pulleys and serpentine belts. Our lines are made from HTP (High Temperature Polymer Braided), a synthetic line with multiple advantages over rubber or stainless lines.

We picked HTP lines for four reasons:
1) it insulates the oil from heat better than rubber or stainless lines,
2) the hose can hold a tighter bend radius without crimping or restricting oil flow, which makes routing the oil lines easier and more versatile,
3) the HTP line are less abrasive than stainless steel braided lines so they won’t rub through your factory power steering lines or any other rubber hose on the car,
4) weight savings – even if it is not much remember it all adds up.

Please Note, the following parts are required to install these lines:
• Euro oil filter housing
• Euro oil cooler and mounts
• (2) TMS AN-10 Oil Line Adaptor Kits (Part# TEN9910200)


This item was specifically designed for the following BMWs but may work in other applications:

E36 Euro Oil Filter Housing

This is a stock Euro E36 M3 oil filter housing, as used on all European spec M3s (with 282hp 3.0 liter or 321hp 3.2 liter). The Euro housing has ports on it for running the Euro oil cooler. It also has an internal oil thermostat that will divert oil back through the block to warm it faster when the engine is cold. This housing is commonly used in the US with the Euro oil cooler when properly modified. The port for the VAN0S needs to be drilled and tapped to match the US VAN0S line and banjo bolt (M14x1.5). We can modify the housing for you (select this option from the list) or you can have it done locally (DIY modification is not recommended). The Euro housing uses the same filter as the other US models.

This is an Original BMW part with these other BMW part numbers - 11427833240 and 11427839858.

E36 M3 Euro Oil Filter Housing - Modified by Turner Motorsport for use on US cars The Euro filter housing has ports for the delivery and return lines of the oil cooler found on the European spec M3. And the internal pathways of the filter housing are designed for the oil to flow out of the housing, into the cooler, and then back to the housing to pass through the filter. Also the Euro housing has an integrated thermostat to bypass the cooler at lower temps (who needs cold oil when the engine is cold?). The US housing is not setup for any of this as the oil just runs straight into the filter and onto the engine. For these reasons, the European E36 M3 coil filter housing is ideal for just about ANY oil cooler application. This is the same housing as used in our Stage I, Stage II, and Stage III oil cooler kits.

What does TMS do to the E36 M3 Euro Oil Filter housing?
The Euro E36 M3 cars use a different VAN0S system and the VAN0S oil line is a different size. The banjo bolt on the US car is M14x1.5 thread and the housing is drilled and tapped using a jig on a machine – not by hand – so the outside surface of the flange is smooth and flat to prevent leaks. This allows this filter housing to be used on US spec M3's, as well as any non-M E36 6 cylinder BMW.

Using this to install an oil cooler? Be sure to consult us. We have complete packaged solutions for street, track and race applications and highly recommend asking our experts.

This item fits the following BMWs:

E36 323/325/328/M3 Turner Motorsport Oil Cooler Kit - Stage 1 with Euro Oil Cooler Our Stage 1 oil cooler kit uses mostly factory BMW parts to achieve a clean appearance and hassle-free installation, and works on ALL US spec 6 cylinder E36 BMW, including M3, 325i, 325is, 328i, 328is, and 323is (sedan, coupe and convertible). Everything we send you bolts or clips into place with no modification necessary and all hardware is included, making this an ideal kit for a street/track car. We use the system from the Euro E36 M3 so all parts are guaranteed to fit and look as it would had the car left the factory with it installed.

Parts included are: Original BMW oil cooler (from Euro E36 M3), BMW oil cooler lines (rubber lines with metal fittings), a BMW oil filter housing (properly modified to accept the US banjo-style fitting of the VAN0S oil line), and brackets to mount the cooler to the bottom of the stock radiator.

This oil cooler system incorporates the Euro M3 oil filter housing. This Euro filter housing has ports for the delivery and return lines of the oil cooler. The internal pathways of the filter housing are designed for the oil to flow out of the housing, into the cooler, and then back to the housing to pass through the filter. Also the Euro housing has an integrated thermostat to bypass the cooler at lower temps (who needs cold oil when the engine is cold?). The US housing is not setup for any of this as the oil just runs straight into the filter and onto the engine. Using this housing also allows the use of the factory euro oil cooler lines, and is a direct fit with a minor modification that we make in-house. Other kits that are on the market don’t have this modification or have a ‘quick fix’ solution which can open up the possibility of leaks or oil starvation. We don’t take shortcuts so our products are engineered to work as a complete system – no leaks, no fitment problems, and superior performance.

This kit will not work on cars with a super charger or racing alternator pulley due to clearance issues with the oil lines. This kit WILL work fine with our TMS pulley kits. For cars with forced induction, turbo, supercharger, or racing alternator pulleys, we recommend our Stage II or Stage III kits, which provide more flexible/universal routing of oil cooler lines, as well as larger oil cooler (Stage III).
