    looks bling, but Im kinda skeptical about the things cooling qualities. I think if I wanted a cooler I'd just add a standard aftermarket cooler.

    Well, I used little extruded aluminum jobber-dos on my electric RC car motors back in the day. It made a world of difference. But that was with thermal paste between it and the motor too...

    I suspect that these things are also extruded aluminum. If that's the case you're paying top dollar for such a little piece. I mean, you're 1/3 of the way to a thermostatically controlled oil cooling system.

    I'd like to try using one on a winch but that's a wee bit pricey for my tastes.
