I too am interested in time for replacing this, as well as on how to avoid draining the coolant to do this.


You do realize there are many parts there you don't need...right ?

You can reuse the clamps or replace them with a $3.00 box of gas line clamps. The hoses I paid in the $7.00 racnge but I get a 25% discount at the dealer.

I rinsed out the oil cooler with acetone and let it dry for a few day's, reused the fittings that hold all that together.

All you need is the pipe and the 3 hoses.

Also I topped of the engine short block with Peak Global 50/50 pre-mix anti-freeze, after using up the Prestone and Peak coolant I had left over from the timing belt change.
256,000miles 5/2012 ej257 short block, 8/2011 installed VF52 turbo, @20.8psi, 280whp, 300ftlbs. CHECK your oil, these cars use it.
