Hi!

I want to fit a oil cooler to my rally swift but im not quite sure if these 2 fits, it says transmission but i guess it should work fine for the engine also. mostly im curious if that sandwich plate fits..

Thats AN 8 and the second one is AN 10, big difference?

Can't see why either wouldn't work. They are for engine oil cooling (but as it says, can be used on transmissions) The sandwich plate has 2 adapters for the filter so with a bit of luck one will be right thread to mount the normal filter. Thought your country was pretty cold? If it is, you should add a thermostat to bypass the cooler till the oil is hot enough to need cooling. Otherwise, you will have a hard time getting the oil up to working temp. You will find them on ebay as well.

Those kits use -8AN hoses. Fine for a transmission but I don't think that's large enough for an engine. -10AN minimum would be my recommendation.
