I got the Larger oil cooler in the car the unit fit with room to spare. As you can see there is room in the 2004 3.2 S motor with 987 cold air intake filter box, larger IPD Plenum, 74 mm throttle body , and 987 MAF.

Also I did not have to bend or shorten the water bypass nipple on the top. The hose was not shortened. Although I can not get a picture of it there was still enough room to put on the hose while the oil cooler was mounted, and now there is about 1/2" clearance. With the mods that you can see the top is tight. The oil cooler went in sideway angle down at about 45 degrees, front end first. Then leveled out, and I turned it 90 degrees to bolt it down. No other parts were removed.

right on - another one for the books. i'm a firm believer in using updated porsche parts from newer/faster models on our cars - let porsche do the engineering.

I just wanted to add a couple of pictures and part numbers for anybody wanting to install the 997 oil cooler.

The 997 cooler is ~3/4" taller than the stock S cooler and the breather hose follows the contour of the intake perfectly with a couple of millimeters of space between the hose and the intake. In my install I did not shorten the hose. The other hoses in the area do not contact the taller oil cooler.

Part are as follows (using superseding numbers):
oil cooler - 997 107 025 02
2 o-rings - 999 707 409 40
2 o-rings - 999 707 389 40

A couple of pics of the install comparison and installation.
