200Tdi oil filter housing without cooler pipes.

As the title says really. Moving the rad on my truck and want to do away with the oil cooler. I know I could just loop the pipe from the filter housing back into itself and if theres nothing available then thats what I will do.

But id like to do away with the pipe's all together so does anyone know if there is a housing (maybe off N/A diesel or something) available that will fit a Tdi and doesn't have the pipes for the cooler?

Cheers.

Steve.

on my tomcat (200tdi) as the rad is in the back i had the same problem so i looped a copper pipe around at the front behind the grill. at the last MOT the tester could not get the oil hot enough to do the emmisions test so i guess i've got enough cooling.

The word Oil Cooler here mean a different thing to an oil radiator.

All this heat exchasnger consists of is a tube about 19mm OD inside the right tank of the radiator.

So does the oil cool the water or the water cool the oil ?

There's also a thermostat at the top of the filter housing for the oil.

Both or actually the water warms up the oil when cold and keeps it on an acceptable level when hot. Miketomcat, I suppose your MOT tester didn't run it long enough! You also have oil fed pistoncooling on a TDI I believe, So I doubt very much it is going to like it when pushed hard. My 2p anyway.
