Told you there was a cheap way to do it!... The kit prices are insane.

Did you put anti-vibe between the cooler and frame?

As you can see I mounted the cooler to one half of aluminum 3/4" by 8"
Strips and I'll use longer bolts and some heat wrap 1" width to provide the "Anti-vibe" Thanks for the Idea.

As you can see I had to divide the volume of oil to pass through the cooler'(See attachment)

I bored out a welder torch tip and threaded it into the Fitting and "Flared" the end...
