Default Disable oil temp safety? - 03-09-2020, 02:57 AM

What temp does the oil need to be for the JB4 to work. Is there any way to disable this?

Would ideally like the JB4 to kick in from the very start.

No, we don't advise this at all. You can damage your motor. 160F

You don't just go WIDE OPEN THROTTLE with your engine cold and oil temperature cold.

That's not what he's asking.

It sounds like a very bad idea to try and run your engine so hard while cold. It really doesn't take long for it to warm up enough for the JB4 to kick in

It WOULD

The tolerances of your engine are spec’d to be “correct” when your engine is warm, not when it’s cold. So if you start applying huge loads when your parts are not the right size, you’re going to get excessive wear and tear. In fact, even if you odn’t apply excessive load, the fact the engine is moving when the tolerances aren’t at the right levels causes wear. Most wear and tear happens at startup (when tolerances are at the worst and lubrication is lacking)

Letting cars “warm up” on the driveway is literally the dumbest thing that people do in the winter. What you should do is literally start it up, wait like 10 seconds and drive off normally, applying light load once the oil pump has managed to send oil to all the parts of the engine is the quickest way of getting your engine up to temp. Idling on the driveway does you nothing.
