Oil Cooler Fan Kit$169.95
of the most common causes of RX-8 engine failure is excessive heat. High temperatures have long been the enemy of
rotary engine longevity and performance. There are many effective modifications
that can increase the cooling capacity of your RX-8s primary cooling system –
the engine coolant, water pump and radiator.
Until now there have been few ways to address the secondary cooling
system – the engine oil and coolers.
The oil system of the Rotary provides approximately 30% of the engine cooling.
normal operation engine oil is routed through the eccentric shaft into the
rotors to provide cooling and lubrication. When engine oil temperatures are
reduced, more heat is removed from the engine reducing demand on the primary
the RX-8 does not come equipped with an oil temperature gauge most owners are
not aware there is a problem until it’s too late and they are facing engine failure or low compression.
another hot summer upon us oil temperatures in street applications are
extremely high and customers are reporting engine operating temperatures in the
240f range. If the past is any
indication, this will lead to yet another round of summer engine failures.
How it works:
low vehicle speed or in stop and go traffic the lack of airflow does not
promote efficient heat transfer from the factory oil coolers. Using our oil
cooler fan kit (or kits) with the factory installed oil coolers significantly
improves air flow across the oil coolers lowering oil temperatures and assisting
in the reduction of engine operating temperatures.
kits are available in driver, passenger, or two sided configurations to meet
any level of cooling needs.
passenger side kit is compatible with automatic transmission cars as well providing
additional transmission cooling which can extend transmission life.
your investment by lowering engine oil temperatures and extending engine life.
