Re: Thermostats (was Termostats :-) )
Yow - 300 hp could be a bit of a problem with the stock cooling system.
Sure, a custom radiators is not a bad idea, but I would definitely look
into an oil cooler for two reasons. First, your oil is probably getting
a little hotter than you really want it to. A btu removed from the oil
is just as good as a btu removed from the coolant.
Oil coolers are not hard to install. The typical set-up is to put an
adaptor between the oil filter and the block. This provides access
without drilling, cutting, etc. You run lines from the adaptor to
cooler you mount in the air stream (in front of the engine or the
radiator). Some versions of this hardware let you mount the oil filter
right on top of the adaptor. Alternatively, you could remotely mount
The best place to find this sort of hardware is probably a speed shop.
