In racing conditions engine oil temperature skyrockets, especially when aftermarket turbo and supercharger kits are installed. This causes decreased engine performance and reduces the oil's ability to properly lubricate. A well-designed engine oil cooling system like the PERRIN Performance Oil Cooler Kit will help keep temperatures within the desired temperature range, thus maintaining performance and prolonging engine life. Most setups can see a drop of approximately 15°-20°F at 7000 RPM.
Using a bar and plate core maximizes heat dissipation without pressure build-up. Oil-ways are interspaced with in-line turbulators to gently stir the fluid being cooled, thereby ensuring that the fluid has exposure to the entire internal surface area of the oil cooler with low-pressure loss.
The PERRIN Performance Filter Adapter features an integrated 85°C (185°F) thermostat. This means your oil will reach an optimum operating temperature of 85°C within the engine before it is released to the oil cooler. In addition to a new OEM oil filter from Subaru, PERRIN Performance Included an oil spacer that allows for easy installation of the thermostat-filter assembly.
The PERRIN Performance Oil Cooler comes with custom brackets that allow the oil cooler core to mount directly to existing holes in the OEM core support of your vehicle. Made from CNC machined 6061 T6 aluminum, the brackets look sleek and stylish while blending seamlessly behind your bumper.
