STM has a few options for a replacement including OEM. If you buy an OEM core, you can reuse the oil feed and return lines as long as you flush them out. Only the core is ruined from engine failure since it's good at collecting metal particulate.

I've used the B&M core before, but I like the OEM one better.

I really dislike recommending MAP stuff, but the MAP kit with setrab cooler is the only one worth spending money on.

My MAP kit with setrab has been working well. The OEM air guides suck *** with it. Make new ones.

Bryan, are you running the corrugated plastic and foil tape or did you use that as a mold for fiberglass or carbon fiber?

The plan was to run it like that to make sure it worked well before making something more lasting. Truth is that it's super rigid as is, especially with the bumper cover on, however I haven't tested it on track yet because shortly after I found some issues with my cylinder head that I am attending to now.

I originally made a template out of cardboard.
