200 TDi oil cooler

This question was asked before but not answered as far as I could find. I was thinking of deleting the oil cooler for my 200 tdi, does anybody see any real issues with this other than shorting the life of the oil. Additionally does anybody know the fitting size. I tried some 20x1.5mm that I had on my 3.9 gas but they don't want to thread in and I'm not going to force it.

Eliminating an oil cooler on a turbo charged engine is not a good idea. It's not the life of your oil, it's the life of your engine you need to worry about.

When I ran with out a cooler on my 300 for a short period the water temp was very cool. Meaning that the oil that was getting the radiator warm was just sitting in the sump getting hot.

Makes sense. I just need to figure out the fitting type and size, so I can make up some lines. I want to use the aeroquip line I was planning to use for the V8.

The oil cooler is also the primary cooling for the bottom end and not running one would probably result in issues there as well.
