UNIVERSAL, OIL COOLER, REMOTE THERMOSTAT, FSM-165
Universal Remote Engine Oil Cooler Thermostat -08AN
High performance vehicles require large oil coolers to ensure the oil does not become overheated during strenuous use. These coolers also introduce the danger of overcooling the oil and delaying engine warm-up, resulting in horsepower loss and excessive engine wear. Oil thermostats perform the critical function of bypassing the oil cooler until the oil has reached its minimum operating temperature.
Improved Racing's oil thermostat is a universal solution that can be used with any oil cooler on any vehicle. The device's unique internal design - the result of over a year of research and development - ensures a low pressure drop by placing the valve mechanism out of the direct oil flow when the valve is closed. The thermostat also boasts one of the most compact designs on the market.
The thermostat bypasses the oil cooler until 180F (82C) and forces all oil flow through the cooler by 200F (92C). It is available with fittings for -8AN or -10AN lines. The included mounting brackets provide multiple mounting configurations.
