    Hi guys, I'm currently setting up a second oil cooler and full flow oil filter with inline thermostat.
    Would it be best to run the oil through the thermostat/cooler first or through the filter and then to the thermostat / cooler?
    What have other people done?
    It's buttercups 1835 with tapped aluminum case and I use to run the lines straight from the pump to the filter then to cooler but now I have upgraded everything and can set it up either way
    Thanks
    Greg
