I dunno, some sort of cooler manufacturer. If you get an aftermarket one it definitely isn't from Ford.

Ya I figured almost any aftermarket cobra heat exchanger would not be made by ford, thats kind of a given. I think that most references on here about using cobra heat exchanger are referring to the oem stock unit because they are cheap, functional, and easy to get because of all the ford guys upgrading.

So are you saying the stock OEM unit is not made by ford? Just curious how you knew that?

Because most manufacturers farm stuff like that out. It might be made by Ford, but I'd guess it's most likely made by somebody else.

The OEM Cobra heat exchanger is made by Garrett and is very good for its size. The Cobra guys are upgrading because they are often pushing 500+HP...

This is one of those places where you get what you pay for... I'd go for something specifically meant for water/coolant instead of oil. If it comes with a radiator cap, just run a higher pressure one than your fill location.

The more I dig n read around I seen alot of different things. Frozen boost has there's labeled as water/oil coolers. And of course ebay list it how ever.

Then using an ac condenser would work too even its a gases conversion to liquid.

I guess im just thinking of volume at this point I dont want it super thin or to big that its barely cooling.

Just tryin to narrow my options in an affordable way.

Yeah, you'll want something that has as much frontal area as possible so it doesn't have to be too thick. CXRacing has a few options that might work for you too.
