Hoerr Racing has good prices on Fluidyne oil coolers. The Fluidyne website
is hard to navigate, but you can download a PDF catalog which will list the
sizes of their various oil coolers. I think I paid around $130 for a ~8x11
core (around 25 rows, I don't remember exactly). I know that the cooler I
bought was available with both -8 & -10 fittings.

The fittings & hose are expensive everywhere. I found mine locally for
roughly the same price as all of the catalogs I checked. The Aeroquip brand
fittings are not the cutter type which are supposed to be like the ones
actually used on aircraft, the other brands like Earls, Goodridge, & XRP are
visibly different than the Aeroquip. I doubt it makes any difference, but
this is what I read when I was doing the oil cooler (I bought Aeroquip
fittings and ended up using XRP because I needed a different angle than I
first thought).
