It's a slip fit, you can see the shape in the picture of it on the TCW website.

Is that the setup for the larger oil cooler for the larger engines? Iím trying to get the right BOM for my standard 7 row oil cooler since I live in a cooler climate. ACS has a kit with 3Ē ductwork that looks like it should work for me, but wanted to check here for opinions.

You'll be fine with a SW8406R fed by a 3" to 4" duct.

The M1B doesn't have piston oil squirts so it doesn't put a ton of heat into the oil like the A1B6 does.

Larry,

Do you think the butterfly valve could be trimmed down on the forward side where it meets the Vans flange? If I install that as you have it laid out in your photo, I'll have to redirect my scat hose forward and it seems like it would be better if I could shorten the valve housing.

You could trim it a bit but be mindful that the butterfly valve blade doesn't hang up on the flange.
