Even though i have been considering a Pinto or toyota engine for my baja. Has anyone ever used an oil cooler for a heater? I bet it wouldn't be hard to rig up to have blow in the car when you need heat and blow out of the car when you don't. It may take a while to heat up, but hey stock heaters aren't really speedy either.

I have. Mount in in a box under the rear seat blow the air into the heater ducts and you can also have a defroster.

i have thought of mounting a second cooler in the car connected in one circuit using a few t-fittings and 12v operated valves to direct the hot oil to either the cooler in the passenger compartment for heating or to the exterior one for cooling. with a small fan behind it and good seal (widows, doors, dash, etc.) i think it would work good enough for me in CA. although it may be too much work for the oil pump

I have a pinto, but I would think you could do the same. I just run a T-Valve and electric fan on my heater. summer I turn it to bypass winter I turn it too heat. If I want hot air I turn on the elctric fan. evan in the summer if the heater is on and the fan is not running the heater will not put that much heat into the car with out the help of the electric fan.
