If this stays true for the track (road course), then my temps wills tay within the 250-260 range and that's acceptable to me. But will test it out there on 2/10.
Yandy,

Did you try this in the track? How where your temperatures?

Thanks,

Just did a half mile event using this. With this and max cool the car was almost cooling below operational temp in between runs lol.

I can definitely see that I'll be swapping back to stock for winter. Took 12 miles on the highway to warm to 160* the other morning (~40* outside).

just installed this today. All i can say is wow. Before oil temps would go up to 240 then go past it and then back to 240 and it was just a back and forth the oil cooler turning on temps going down oil cooler turning off and repeat. Now temps stay much cooler i dont want to say a number because it varies what you are doing as well as ambient air temp which right now is 90 here in florida. This mod wont eliminate the need for an upgraded oil cooler for people who do road course days but it certainly helps keep the temp down on hard drives and pulls

Sounds like your old oil thermostat was binding up.

My oil temp never just cycles up & down.

well it would go over 240 the thermostat would come on and the oil temp could come down and then raise again because the thermostat was off again

I'm thinking the early 2007's that have the #1 Tstat open at a lower temp. (220-230) and also have a 210F mid point on the oil temp dash gauge.

Just curious if anyone w/ the #1 Tstat can confirm their oil gauge mid point is 210F?

This build date sharing could prove helpful. Mine is an August 2007 build date and I have the newer #2 style thermostat.

The midpoint on my dashboard oil temp gauge is 250 degrees.

We need to get our hands on one of those early 2007 housings to make a special stat for them. If anyone has the old housing and is willing to swap it for a free new housing with our low temp stat in exchange, email me. Once we have the old housing and stat in house we can design something for it.

Have mine installed for a couple days now just to see back to back pulls, spirited driving, and city driving. My temps never got above 230 degrees and usually sit at 190-205 or so. AMAZING product especially for us guys in the summer down here in Texas!

I don't know where others are at but my early Tstat opens just past the 210 midpoint on the gauge.

I can't see why the oil temp midpoint would have anything to do with this (this is not the oil temp stat, it is just for the oil cooler). The midpoint on the gauge was just shifted, but the oil still warmed to the same temp (240 to 250) whether or not your gauge was centered at 210 or 250.

Here is the set up from my 09/06 Build. It's different than the #1 Tstat. My oil temps are normally 210-220 but < 250 when tracking for 1/2 hr.

Mine is a 10/06 build, with 210F as the center, and my temps easily get to 240-250 (I have an oil cooler that was retrofitted as part of the early AT's w/ZSP that did not receive one)

Same here, if you make one for the older style Terry, I will get it.

Anyone attempt this on an F30? I just tried and I swear the the thing is too long. Tried 4-5 times and decided that there's no way I'm doing something wrong. The cap just doesn't come close to closing (somewhere in the neighborhood of a 1/4" -3/8" off). Help.

We have one on our F30. If you need assistance email photos to jason@burgertuning.com. Ensure you're sticking the long end in first and that there are no burrs, etc, interfering with the lid.
