Mazdaspeed6 Power Steering Cooler Kit
The Damond Motorsports Power Steering Cooler Kit, for the 06-07 Mazdaspeed6, is ideal for lowering power steering temperatures on the track and the street. Our Power Steering Cooler Kits utilize a stacked plate cooler design, over a tube and fin design. The stacked plate cooler design can provide more effective cooling with a smaller sized cooler, and it is more durable, compared to tube and fin design coolers. During our testing, on a smaller cooler (50% less surface area than the coolers in the kits), we achieved 15-25% cooler fluid temperatures, depending on the air flow to the cooler.
Product works as advertised, easy installation procedure, and a great alternative to OEM PS components. Recommend purchasing the additional hose. DM never disappoints in service and quality, highly recommended product!
Inexpensive price, does a great job. I'm curious as to what the cooler was originally designed for. It's basically designed like oil or transmission coolers, but much smaller than those typically are. It is big enough for the job at hand, I'm not complaining. And I know Damond sells a similar unit with a bigger cooler. But it's not necessary for most people. I'm just curious as to what the original purpose was. In any case, he gives you the parts you need to mount it and is so much better than stock.
This kit was a God send after getting quote from Mazda for their OEM replacement. Mechanic who does maintenance on my '07 Speed6 had to do a bit of cutting and fitting(not due to Damond kit)but due to aftermarket intake kit which intruded on area where kit was to fit.
Ordered kit after some correspondence with DS and kit arrived very quickly and in good order. I would unequivocally recommend DS for product quality, good communication, fast shipping and the price on this kit was a MEGA saving over what Mazda wanted.
Bravo, Damond Motorsports!
I was very impressed with the quality of the kit provided. I’m not a mechanic so I could’ve used slightly better directions for the layperson but that’s just my fault. I will look for more products from these people for my ms6.
very nice build quality on this kit and for the price i can't grumble.
the radiator installed fine but upon trying to install the line it was very tricky trying to get the rubber hose onto a 12mm pipe with a ridge on it. 8mm over 14mm or so is a big ask in the first place but with string in the rubber (reinforced as it should be) i was destroying the inside of the pipe trying to fit it.
What we did was cut the lines on the car and trimmed the plastic sheathing back, then put a 12mm to 10mm compression fitting on it with around 70mm of 10mm pipe sticking out of the fitting and with an olive compressed onto the end of it to make a ridge. then it was just a question of putting the pipe over and using the existing jubilee clips to secure the line in place at the radiator end and the 'car' end.
a bit Heath Robinson by my standards but no bearing on the kit. Its a lot easier than replacing all the lines especially the line that goes under the driveshaft.
for the price and the usability of the kit it gets top marks from me.
