This fitting was designed specifically for bypassing the factory water-to-oil cooler in the C7 Corvettte.
Bypassing the factory oil cooler is desirable if you wish you replace the factory water-to-oil cooler with a high-performance air-to-oil cooler, while also retaining the auxiliary radiator. If no auxiliary radiator is present, the factory water-to-oil cooler can be bypassed completely (see kit part number EC7-681). However when the auxiliary radiator is used, it must remain connected to the block via the water-to-oil cooler line.
This fitting simply couples the inlet and outlet lines to the factory water-to-oil cooler together, allowing the factory cooler to be removed while retaining the water connection for the auxiliary radiator.
