How much difference in temps does the RS oil cooler make?
Check the classifieds mate. Jon is selling his for 280 notes.Well im running CP320 and have a trackday coming up in February so was going to fit one, but i have also seen the dreamscience one which has a thermostat that would be better for when its on the road, but its nearly 3 times the price!
It does not make your oil any cooler. It is not designed to do so. It maintains the cars optimum working oil temp easier under harsher conditions. It allows your engine oil to get up to working temp quicker also. Its about making your car able to cope with more power. Power creates heat as a by-product. This heat has to be discippated somewhere. It goes into your oil, into your coolant and under your bonnet in convection. (That is why the RS has bonnet vents). The coolant soaks the majority of heat away with the oil taking a fair share too. Maintaining the correct oil temp is crucial, as oil has an optimum working temp, at which it does its job best. Equipping your car with a RS oil cooler will make its job easier.how much cooler does it make the oil though? At the moment mine sits between 80-90oC on the gauge depending how its driven. Where does yours sit at?
