I am of no help.. other than to say, why? I can't see anyone needing on oil cooler in this car..
I have all the parts to put a FMOC on my CC left over from when I sold my Passat, all I would need is 2 fittings. If I decide to jump the gun and go for it I would have to switch to a regular oil filter. Is there anything i should expect other than it getting messy when I take off the filter for an oil change? Is there anything special about our oil filters other than having a male thread on the end instead of a female?
To connect it you can see what I had tig wlded together. I used the fitting from a stock CC filter cut at the base. I drilled it out slightly so the pipe for the oil filter for a B5.5 passat could fit inside. I would have taken pictures before i put it in but once it was in i couldn't get it out without damaging the threads. I can have an exact piece made for you for like $25-30 bucks.
I used a MOCAL sandwich plate that has a thermostat that i had laying around. You can get one for $100 and most likely piece the kit together for like $200 or so depending on the core, lines fittings etc.
Lastly, I had to shave the plate and the fitting to clear the 2 coolant pipes that run by the oil filter.
AND IT DOES CLEAR THE SUPPORT, BARELY
