  Does anyone out there have a field approval for adding a second oil cooler
to a Pitts S2S or S2B?  I put a six into one exhaust system on my S2S  (Lyc
IO-540), It works great, but all the extra pipe in the cowl makes for oil
temp around 230 degrees during prolonged acro on a hot day. I've seen a
separate cooler mounted in the nose bowl under the prop in an S2A (different
engine). Does anyone have any info on a B or S2S?
