Oil Coolant Removal (not replacement)
Greetings all, I know there's threads about removing the stock oil cooler system and replacing it with better lines, relocating things as well as replacing it with different brand oil coolant systems altogether.
My question is, and I've seen this alluded to in other posts, could you (in practice or theory), just remove the oil coolant system altogether with a simple U-style pipe fitting at the sandwich plate?
Could/should/would the engine run normal? Is that an issue for everyday driving around town, highway, some stop n' go traffic in SoCal climate where it's usually sunny and between 50-90F most places, most of the year? Would I expect to throw engine codes doing that?
And if it's relatively safe, and the car isn't being tracked or raced, wouldn't it then be alright to snip the original coolant line fittings off and remove the whole shebang?
