Thermostatic Oil Sandwich Plate is a lightweight, high-flow sandwich plate built from 6061 Aluminium. The built-in thermostat prevents oil flow to the cooler until the engine oil reaches activating temperature, allowing for both a faster warmup at startup and extra oil system protection in cold climates. The included 185 degree Fahrenheit thermostat can be changed with a 160 or 200 degree unit, adding unparalleled control over your desired engine oil operating temperature.
CAUTION: When installing sandwich plates, lines, oil-coolers, etc. it is the installer's responsibility to check all thermostat plugs, NPT plugs, line fittings, and other connections to assure they are fully tightened before installing or operating the vehicle. Mishimoto recommends that you check all connections at regular intervals, especially during the first few miles after installation, to inspect for leaks.
