    More engine power = more engine heat which must be dissipated by radiators and oil cooler. I don't have details of Me-109 series cooling system but it must have gotten larger over time.

    Well on my profiles in the BF-109 Monography F-4 looks almost exactly the same as G-2. But I really would not recommend having it as the source as it is late 80s book.

    According to Prien and Rodeike the enlarged oil cooler, possibly the Fo 870 (also used on the G-1 to G-4 series), was first fitted to F-4/Zs which were also fitted with GM-1; the F-4 Trop also used the enlarged oil cooler. So, yes the Eagle Parts #24 would be usable, depending on the aircraft you are building.

    Also note that most F-4/Zs and Trops used a VDM 9-12087A propeller, which had wider blades than the VDM 9-12010A fitted to most F-2s and some F-4s.
