It seems that Porsche dealers are selling it at a discounted price.


I noticed the same thing yesterday. This thread had me all wound up so I finally ended up ordering one.

It will be a couple years before I get my 2.4l assembled but figured I’d get one now before inflation makes it worse.



Porsche sells them for about $950. The ones that are advertised for less are the old part number and they will accept the order and then a day or so later email you with the updated part number and the new price. Pelican have them for another 2-300 on top of that.


@mb911 Hey Ben, what is the part number for the new cooler? Is it a 911 cooler and you still have to have the 914-6 oil inlet adapter added on?

Interesting timing. I just sent my oil cooler out I have had for 15 years to pacific oil coolers for a refresh. I called them today and they have it, supposed to be done next week. Let you know my experience. I was wondering if they send you flow bench test results to see how the flow improved after cleaning.



I wouldn't think so and have never seen one on our coolers that are routinely cleaned for motor rebuilds.

any shrapnel in the cooler will not reduce flow.. its likely stuck in nooks and crannies... but not large enough to reduce flow.

the cleaning hopefully removes all of that... but if a piece works out later it will cause engine damage to the bearings

not a flow issue though

I ordered the /6 cooler 90110705901 hoping I get a /6 cooler. If I recall Porsche had a new batch of these made supporting the 50th anniversary along with floor mats, and /6 CV joints that once again became available around the anniversary.


Hoping for the best but prepared for the worst.

So turns out my oil cooler leaks and I need a new one too! I guess that's why it occasionally drips on the floor, they are all 40 years old now. Mine was modified by patrick motorsports with the AN-16 fitting originally, so I am getting the standard 911-107-041-02, but I am having Ben weld on a new AN-16 fitting for me.
