Mishimoto Thermostatic Oil Cooler Kit Black 2008-2014 WRX
High oil temperatures can wreak havoc on your high-performance flat four. Protect your investment with the Mishimoto direct-fit oil cooler kit designed specifically for the 2008+ Subaru WRX. The WRX has a lot to offer with its turbocharged engine and fantastic AWD system, but these vehicles are not factory-equipped with an oil cooler. Properly regulated oil temperatures become even more important if you have modified your vehicle or spend time tracking your WRX. Mishimoto's direct-fit oil cooler is engineered to reduce oil temperatures and extend the life of your engine. For optimal airflow and cooling, this kit includes a large 19-row cooler that is mounted in the front bumper with robust application-specific brackets. The included CNC-machined aluminum spacer provides ample room for our oil sandwich plate, making this kit compatible with the factory exhaust manifold heat shields. This kit includes preassembled stainless steel lines with -10AN fittings and a thermal reflective wrap that deflects radiant heat from the exhaust. With this setup, your WRX can achieve a 50°F (34°C) drop in oil temperatures with minimal pressure loss. The Mishimoto Subaru WRX Oil Cooler Kit is available with a Sleek Silver or Stealth Black cooler and the Mishimoto Thermostatic Oil Sandwich Plate, for even greater control over your oil temperatures.
The Mishimoto Thermostatic Oil Sandwich Plate is a lightweight, high-flow sandwich plate built from 6061 aluminum. 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°F (85°C) thermostat can be changed with a 160°F (71°C) or 200°F (93°C) unit, adding unparalleled control over your desired engine oil operating temperature. Also includes a 1/8" NPT threaded hole on the side for oil sensors.

Mishimoto recommends that you check all connections at regular intervals, especially during the first few miles after installation. For additional technical information, contact email@example.com.
