Oil Boiler Control
Boil your oil or run too cool no more! Improved Racing of Orlando, Florida, just released the first oil cooler adapter with a built-in thermostat for the C7 Corvette. Improved Racing’s president and lead engineer Michael Ihns stated, “the C7 factory water-to-oil heat exchanger is acceptable for street use but insufficient for track or performance use.” And went on to explain “replacing the factory unit with a traditional air-to-oil cooler can reduce both oil and coolant temps at the track, but without a thermostat one risks over-cooling the oil on the street and will experience long engine oil warm-up times, resulting in excess engine wear.”
