Porsche Boxster and Cayman models with the M96/M97 engine uses an oil to water heat exchanger mounted on the top of the engine, using coolant to control engine oil temperature. The factory Porsche engine oil cooler is undersized and does not provide adequate thermal transfer when used for spirited driving, track duty, or in hot climates, resulting in elevated oil temperatures and reduced component life. Unfortunately, due to the location of the factory oil cooler, a larger cooler can not be retrofitted into place. To allow installation of a larger oil cooler, we have developed a kit that remotely mounts the cooler utilizing an oversized Porsche Cayenne Turbo oil to water heat exchanger made exclusively for LN Engineering.
The BRS Cayman/Boxster 987.1 6-Speed Engine Oil Cooler plug and play kit replaces the existing engine oil cooler and uses an adapter plate that plumbs both engine oil and coolant/water to our remotely mounted 0.5 L capacity heat exchanger. The cooler is mounted to the transmission with supplied bracket, hardware, Aeroquip hose, and fittings. Maintaining a lower operating temperature will improve both the performance and longevity of your Porsche Cayman or Boxster engine.
