Oil flow #'s

I am doing a project in Heat Transfer that requires my group to design a heat exchanger (oil cooler) for a submarine.

I have absolutely no idea how much oil flow a 460 has... much less a big, industrial engine.

I '***'ume the oil temp (outlet) shouldn't be over 220*F or so, right?

Do you guys have any idea how much oil a large engine may flow? How about our lil' 460's?

I don't even know what RPM's a big engine will turn.

I don't need anything exact, but I am just anal enough that I want to make a 'half-assed' educated guess .

Have a good day!
