What are the thoughts on a Upgraded Radiator vs Laminova Oil System? Should I install both? Or I need only one of them? Would you like to share your experience(s) please?

How are you using your car? Are you doing trackdays? If not, the radiator and oil cooler are not likely to be that beneficial in your cooler climate. The dual oil cooler are almost too good for most people.

Thanks for the reply, been waiting.

Probably some trackdays. And where I live can get quite hot in the summer time. Our summers are short though.

Iceman-,

Is your kit from LotusSport? Or did you purchase the radiator and the oil cooler seperately. If you purchased the components seperately, did you have to buy/make some bracket(s) to fit?

Thanks

All from Lotus Motorsport via Lotus Dealer.

The kit contains all you need, also a plaque that must be glued at rear of chassy in the thank zone that is the support for the Water/oil cooler.

Thank you very much for the pictures, very helpful.

So you mean the LotusSport Kit has both the radiator and the oil cooler?

Yes is this:

You could buy rad and Lami separately but them are part of the well work.
Needs also the sandwitch plate, air con gas reload and obviusly oil and water change.
