Hi, Im about to put the turbo back on the 200(T)di but dont have the oil cooler parts yet. Will there be any harm in running it without the oil cooler for a while or will the turbo instantly cook the oil? It's not like It'll be going distances, just 2 mile test drives at the moment really.

Cheers, Brian

In 2 miles I don`t think that even the engine will get warm. Let see what will the experts say...

That's kind of my thinking... I just don't want to go frazzling my endine but don't want to be worrying for no reason also!

Cheers, Brian

I have a friend who does thousands of miles with a tweaked up 200Tdi on a Series rad and no oil cooler. His does get too warm on long hard use but in a few miles it could probably run without the rad! Don't worry about it. There is a lot of metal and oil to get warm before the cooler does anything anyway.

Long term having the oil cooler is a sensible and worthwhile move.
