HKS Oil Coolers use high performance cooling cores; so there is the possibility of overcooling which is prevented by the use of a thermostat (some vehicles excluded). This thermostat has high response and able to react quickly to change of oil temperature. Once oil temperature reaches the set level, the oil will flow through the cooler core but bypasses when temperatures drop lower. This allows engine oil to be maintained at the ideal temperature.
* Thermostat Opening Temperature 70 (±3)
* Thermostat Full Open Temperature 80 (±3)
48mm thick oil cooler mounted on driver side. Includes air duct that directs cold air through the oil cooler core. After passing through oil cooler core, air exits to the outside through the vents in the wheel arch. Although its installed in the fender area fog lamps can still be used.
Installation requires modifications of mud guard, under cover, front bumper, air cleaner, horn bracket, exhaust manifold heat insulator. Prepare 5.5 L of engine oil.
Thermostat relief feature allows for safe operation in times of emergency. In cases where the core or lines become blocked and the oil pressure rises, the thermostat will bypass the core to maintain the correct oil pressure and prevent damage to the oil lines and fittings.
Stainless braided hoses chosen for increasing durability. Hose lengths and fitting types are tailored to each vehicle application to ensure easy and tidy fitting while preventing connection errors.
