viscous is the word your looking for... hotter oil is not "thinner" but simply more viscous. Viscosity is a specification that you can control btw. which will tell you if you need a cooler.

2 things: 1) Why would you want to not want the oil pressure to drop for just a second? The way I see it, just mount it and then add oil after. Why risk the mess? 2) You added German (high zinc) oil into your Mazda (Asian) oil. Naughty naughty!

🧐If your car has an issue with oil getting hot and you plan on keeping the car it’s not a bad idea to get an oil cooler, but certainly not necessary. If your oil doesn’t get too hot now it’s probably not worth putting one on. They are always helpful on a turbocharged application 👨🏾‍🔧

Most cars/trucks come with oil coolers now a days but 99% of the time they're actually HEATING the oil rather than cooling it. Using engine coolant rather than air for oil cooling lets the thermostatically controlled fluid warm up quickly which in turn then heats the engine oil and automatic transmission fluid to operating temperature much faster. This thins the oils which lets them flow better and consume less power through drag which increases fuel economy while also decreasing emissions. If you really flog it and the oil temps try to get hotter than the coolant temps then and only then does a 'cooler' actually do any cooling.

"Is an Oil Cooler Worth it?" I dont really feel they answered this question. More like they are saying it "should" be worth it. There wasn't testing of the results of before and after to any level that makes us understand if it is truly worth it. But okay, I get it.

Don't even get me started with oil cooler... One of the most well known online car part store sold me wrong oil line for my oil cooler. the hose failed and lost most of my oil. i shut off the engine as soon as i noticed low oil pressure light but it was too late i called and complained to them and all i got was 50 dollar gift card.. which i never used

If you put the lines on the oil cooler with oil in it before mounting it, you will keep from spilling oil while mounting. Also, you should use some blue thread locker on the sandwich plate pass-through bolt to make sure that it stays on when you remove the oil filter during oil changes.

Anybody wanting real oil education needs to be on bitog.com . Contrary to popular belief dropping to a thinner grade oil has shown cooler oil temps being that it flows easier pulling more heat away while reducing pumping friction which therefore heats the oil back up. Running molasses thick oil is very old school mentality.

Put a similar * but NOT* FM oil cooler on my track car. Lost a full 15 psi (auto meter gauge) of oil pressure. HOT it Was 50 psi before, went to 35 psi after ( which is below minimum, per factory service manual). Ended up having to remove it to get my oil pressure back. Mine is a dedicated normally aspirated NB track car. So I didn’t want to blow it up to have lower oil temperatures. Do yourself a favor and measure post cooler install oil pressure. With good gauge. Should be about 50 psi *HOT*.

Engines run dry more than a few seconds when you change the oil no matter if you prime the filters or cooler with oil or not there will be a coating of oil which will protect the parts for more than a few seconds until theres oil pressure.

Major word of warning. Having used so called adapters to plumb coolers most go out of their way to restrict flow. I have spent hours with the die grinder trying to get most of the flow back.Every 90deg bend loses 10lb of oil psi. And so many fittings etc take a 1/2"[13mm] oil passage and restrict it under 10mm. An oil cooler WHEN fitted correctly is very handy. It stabilises oil temp under hard use as well as deaerates the oil as well. Very handy for track days. A good enough reason to fit one even if you really do not require the cooling. For your drive to work car unrequired. Heavy towing [towing the racecar] very handy. Thermostats generally cause more grief than they fix unless you live in very cool climates. California a waste of time

Could you do something on how to choose what oil weight to run through a miata and why? I've read plenty of forums but I mostly find people's opinions and the common lifter tick issue that has an actual free fix. I'm not sure what other reason you might want to change oil weight. I bet a lot of other people don't know why either. :)

Look at using the 1010 filter from that company that puts the nut on the end, I noticed you removed the sticker. It's a smidge longer then the 1008 you have on your car, a touch more capacity never hurts and the larger filter element is more efficient.
