Does anyone know of some aftermarket oil coolers for the V8 that fit/work? The factory ones are very expensive? I even took a look at getting some custom made here in the USA and they still were $500 each.

Are you positive it's the oil coolers you need and not the hoses?

:no:

Setrab Oil Coolers

You could always just buy an oil cooler and mount it where ever you want. Hoses are cheap.

Just make sure it gets air flow. No reason to run it all the way to the front of the car. The passenger side air duct would be more than adequate for a big-old oil cooler and tranny cooler.

You are talking about oil coolers for an Elise right?
