Not needed in average daily drivers, but STRONGLY recommended for track and aggressive autocross use. If you are fast, track days can see the oil go to 300 F, and long before you reach that point the ECU aggressively pulls timing, responsiveness gets very soft, and the car gets slow. We used this in our ND for many track events, dropped our oil temps from 275/300 range down to 230F and less. Even aggessive autocross use without oil cooling got oil temps beyond 250 F and we found the stock ECU pulling timing, slowing us down, which was cured with this oil cooler. Note that once we added TURBO to our Racing ND this was not enough oil cooling for our racing use with our AVO Turbo and we started working on even bigger Setrab unit. We then moved our Mishimoto cooler to our Supercharged RF where it continues to serve us well.
Mazda finally added a heat exchange sandwich to dump oil heat into the coolant radiator on all new Miatas for 2019+.
