Re: N275CH Piston question

Just to show that there is always another viewpoint. I have high
compression pistons and absolutely do not need an oil cooler. I do have
full plenum baffles which does a better job of using the air coming into the
inlets. Dave Richardson showed how I fabricated them in a Q-talk, about two
years ago.

My experience is when you install high compression pistons you will
need an oil cooler because of the added heat.

3. I knew Charlie was anticipating putting an oil cooler on the
airplane before he became ill. To me this indicates that he was
fighting heat after rebuilding his engine with these pistons.

4. I don't need the additional performance, I want reliability.
