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.

Testimonial: The best company I have ever dealt with
LRS hands down is doing everything right. Every experience I have ever had with them shows just what an amazing company they are. There is a reason I come back time after time, instead of going to those "other" mustang aftermarket websites. Customer service is the name of their game, and they are winning. It does not matter whether you call, email, forum PM, or go to the actual store, they are always incredibly helpful and enthusiastic. (Getting to see the Cobra R in their showroom was awesome). I'm proud to have the LRS windshield banner on my car, because I know they will always have my back.
This is Vivian. This is my 5th mustang in 4 years. I had never owned one until the 2011 came out with the new 5.0, and then I my addiction began. I started with a 2011 CS, then a 2012 Stage 2 Roush, t...
