Oil Heat System

I am putting an oil cooler in the hell hole and attaching a Attwood Marine Turbo 3000 blower motor. I am running 1.5″ SCAT tubing down both sides of the aircraft to carry the heat forward to my feet. I have built the cambers on bother sides of the hell hole oil cooler/heat exchanger out of 3 plys of bid and added two 1.5″ 90 deg. PVC pipe fittings to attach the SCAT tube too. Oil lines will run through the firewall to the oil cooler/heat exchanger.
