my dad said he could get me an oil cooler for free, would this be any good for water cooling. Im just starting to read up on water cooling as it seems it might be worth while. Any links or info would be gratefull.

Depends on what it is, what it is made of and what condition it is in. I have a transmission cooler that has copper tubes. Some oil coolers are perfect for computer cooling.

Mine is a Flex-o-lite brand one that came from Auto Zone. It has copper tubes and aluminum fins. The one I have has 6 passes and is for a 3/4 Chevy truck. There is also a 4 pass one that would be cheaper.

If your thinking of using a tranny cooler get a performance app cooler. Flexolite has them and so does B&M. They are for street rod/racing apps. They cool a whole hell of alot better, look at one and you'll see why.
