    Oil cooler bypass question?

    Installing my lt1 in an s-10 and was wondering if it was ok to remove my oil cooler? Or i assume that is what im looking at. It is two lines, one from radiator and one from water pump that run into side of oil filter mount. If i remove this i know how to plug or reroute the lines but what do i do on the block side? can i just leave it open or is it pressurized from some where else?

    Thanks in advance.

    One to the water pump??? Both should go to the radiator.... and I would not bypass it. It is under pressure, and my no flow the oil correctly if plugged, costing you a motor...

    Its not oil that runs thru it. It is water that circulates around the oil filter adapter.

    it is a 1993 if that makes a difference. If what i read was correct maybe only 93 and 94 had it but not sure.

    Ok, If it is water, then hook up an air hose with a sprayer, and use a rag to seal and blow thru one side... If it comes out the other side (of the filter adapter), without blowing bubbles in your oilpan, then just run the hose from the pump to the radiator...
