My Subaru Outback xt has one from factory it sits between the filter and block. Though that car is far from efficient being an awd wagon with a 2.5l turbo

I would imagine OEMs use them on turbocharged engines to help prevent coking issues.

Yeah itís used as a cooler to prevent coking not warm up the oil but Iím sure it does a little of both. It would be easy for you to add one all the ej Subaru blocks have the same external dimensions all you would have to do is install the cooler and the fitting in the block, there is on hard line and three rubber 90 degree hoses possibly put a different water pump on idk if youíre pump would have the fitting the coolant pipe goes to

Aaaand, a quick google search finds us this. $15 shipped. Not bad at all. I just have to figure out if its the same thickness as the VW cooler.

I have one in the up!
Heats up the coolant really fast, so in turn, that should heat up the oil pretty quickly, too !

As always, watch engine temperatures when blocking the grille !
