Like I said, this isn't an old carbed V8. Newer cars are ment to run at normal operating temps which is usally around 195-210 depending on the car. Escort GT BP and BPT motors run at 210. So why do you need to run it so cold?tturnpaw said:Turbo, of course. Engine type does not specify what degree, its just proven that vehicles run better at a steady operating temp of 180-190* NOT ABOVE. Even after speaking with a fluid dynamics tech on this, he agreed vehicles operate better at a lower temp than factory. Adding a turbo will raise it into the danger zone of 205+ when in boost and just by having another heat source.
Are you talking about the factory oil cooler or did you add in a second one?tturnpaw said:There is an oil cooler installed currently with a 190* thermostat in the cooler assembly. Since were using 10w 30, there will be no issues with the temp of either the engine coolant or oil temp abiding by fluid dynamics.
