    BEHR fender mounted oil cooler dimensions and specifications needed for new coolers

    Does anyone have access to an original BEHR front oil cooler with M30 fittings (part # 901.107.046.00), as fitted to the 72 S, that they would be happy to carefully measure and provide all dimensions of (including the dimensions, positioning and angle of the brackets), count the number of fins and rows and so on, so that I can provide this information to an oil cooler fabricator to make LH and RH authentic-looking - but hopefully more efficient - matrix-type coolers for my 2.5 S/T please?

    Also, if anyone might have a BEHR specification document (if one even exists), that would be helpful too.

    best of luck..i`v been through this process last year....there is a reason why porsches reissued cooler looks different...tooling cost are huge(if you want to go for identical looks) will take ages to break even.
    a friend of mine is CEO of a cooler manufacturer that supplies to most german car brands etc. thats why we gave it a try...but we ended up in the 6 figures

    Okay thanks for the heads-up on that - I hadn’t appreciated the huge tooling costs involved tbh.

    Maybe I just have to get something made which does the job well but doesn’t look like the original (it will be hidden behind the stone guard after all) or I get the Porsche Classic one.
