Hi guys,

Just got back from the RS Adrenaline Academy. I noticed that they were running a PTU cooler and was able to get these part numbers from them on the setup they run on all of their cars.

Setrab Oil Cooler (SET-53-10743) https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecID=10289
Setrab Pump Filter (SET-IF0808D) https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecID=9561
Genesis Vitron Seal Lube Pump from Hoerr Racing (GC1111) http://www.hrpworld.com/store/default/oil-system/lube-pumps/genesis-technologies-lube-pump/genesis-technologies-lube-pump-vilton-seals-gen-gc1111.html

They are running a thermostat that turns the pump on at 180 degrees Fahrenheit. (PTU oil temp?) Found this online... not sure if this is what they are using:

Sorry if this information has already been posted somewhere on here!!!

I kept pushing them to give me the part numbers so I can look into building myself a kit. I don't like getting the AWD off at my local track....

This is incredibly useful, thank you for finding this information! It's a long shot, but did you see what the pump was hooked into to get that 180F reading?

All I know is that the the pump is pulling from the drain plug on the PTU and runs it through the cooler then into the fill plug... Not sure exactly where the thermostat would have to be.

There are inline AN thermostats I've seen before. This is missing a few parts but the basics are all there. Would obviously need fittings and lines etc.

Yah, definitely missing a few part numbers but I'm just happy they gave me this information!!

Is this a top secret build or something? Why would they be keeping it secret?
More than likely because it's at Ford racing, and if they release info about it it infers that it's backed by Ford racing, etc. I looked at it quite extensively while I was there and it looks very well done.

They also have a flexible hose plumbed through the skid plate to cool the power steering pump.

They also have something directing air onto the RDU!

This temp sensor would work with a relay to control the pump:

https://www.summitracing.com/parts/hfm-zfswf

Then all you'd need was a hose adapter with a 3/8" NPT port in it, position it near the drain plug of the PTU so it could sense the temp, doesn't need to be exact. I would want some way to make sure the fluid quantity was correct but it could be as simple as figuring out the exact amount of fluid the additional components held. I suspect they got this solution straight from Ford so they gave them the component list and quantities.

I like this idea but don't want to put it in front of the Cooltech oil cooler so I am trying to figure out another spot - the DHM crash bar mod would have let me put it in the nose but they are, at best, suspect right now.

What about something like this?

The only thing this picture doesn't show is a pump to move the oil from the drain plug through the cooler then back into the fill plug.

After talking with my tuner Adam: tune+ already has Mounting brackets for a PTU cooler mocked up. With a pump that is driven by the halfshafts and a thermostatic bypass.

I'm gonna see what comes out of that, sounds awesome. Would be nice to be sure the AWD won't turn off.

Thank you for confirming this. There was some argument about if they were cooling the ptu fluid or the coolant going into the ptu. Nobody believed me...
