    Mike taught me that. He also has a tube with castle cuts in the end that he heats and spins with a drill. I prefer the copper tube myself.

    Drill? Pass. Use a small soft copper tube and sharpen the edges. Heat with a torch and melt the holes. You can do several before the heat gets to where you hold the tube. No cracks. Ever.

    I'd be careful about too much AOA. If flat the airplane will decide when to fly off. With the nose high it may suffer from premature ejaculation, and nobody wins when that happens. ;)

    Having never seen a section view of an oil cooler's cooling core, is there a reduction in efficiency when the cooler is laid horizontal rather than the vertical installations 99.9% of us use?

    No idea, but it can't match the flow through a fully exposed cooler on the rear baffle. But you can duct air from other places than just the top cowl. That would be a good place to start without...

    With that oil cooler installation you could add a pilot controlled scoop on the top cowl and force more air through the cooler without stealing any air from the top deck. If it was mine? I'd hang a 9...
