There are quite a few neat 2012-13 Boss Specific parts that are a direct fit for the 2011-2014 Mustang GT. One of them happens to be this M-6642-MB Engine Oil Cooler Kit from Ford Racing FRPP. It is designed to reduce oil temperature, & in turn engine temperature, as well as prolong engine & engine oil life. Perfect for any 2011-2014 V8 5.0L Mustang!
The cooler itself installs between the engine oil filter & the engine block utilizing the included extended length oil filter bung. The cooling system will need to be drained to replace the lower radiator hose, & then the cooler hose assembly installs between the cooler & the new lower radiator hose. Easily installed in your driveway in an afternoon with hand tools!
Note - A 9/16" allen hex socket will be needed to remove & install the Oil Filter Bung. The bung should be torqued to 43 lb-ft.
I road race on the weekends so this was a must for me, Install was very simple with an OEM fit. After you get it all drained, and the plastic out of the way its a bout a 20 min install. Great Product and a nice bang for the buck! Thanks LateModel!

Boss302 oil cooler
Philip M. on
I see no measurable changes in my Mustang's performance with the cooler being in my car for 2 weeks. I can say the install was longer than the estimated 2 hours because of the tight area to play with the factory hose clamps. Getting the factory hose out only took a few minutes but installing the Boss302 lower radiator hose was a pain. The hose has more to it so putting it in its proper place was a chor. I suggest getting the correct hose clamp tool to use on this install. Pliers is not the way to go unless you want to be frustrated. The cooler itself went right into place and the quick connect fittings are easy. The oil filter is set out further from the engine block making oil changes easier and less mess on my steering unit and harness. I like that part a lot! All pain aside, I am happy I put this part in my Mustang.

Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!! This is what I wish all Vendors would do; no arguments, no blame, no B.S. !! This is why LateModel stands out as an upstanding company, and backs up their products with AWESOME Customer service.
