Among the many things I love about my '89 Esprit Turbo is the fact that it does not have a charge cooler. Having worked on many SE's and often dealing with the plumbing of the oil coolers (modified from the non-SE single oil cooler, in effect the old central oil cooler position became the charge cooler radiator for the SE and the SE used the split oil cooler "wings") I really appreciate the relatively simpler and cleaner plumbing without the charge cooler and its consequences for the oil coolers. I do appreciate those who lust for ever more power will think I'm a moron, but I am a happy moron and quite content with my performance and power "sans intercooler" as my French friends might say. Actually helping a friend right now with his SE and we are doing a lot of work (repairing accident damage) and we had to move those wing coolers out of the way. What a PITA.
