Cosworth Low Temperature Thermostat

9 Aug

High performance racing engines require upgraded and improved cooling systems for maximum reliability. One important component of the upgraded cooling system is a thermostat that opens to allow coolant passage through the engine and cooling system at reduced temperature compared to the original equipment thermostat. Reducing the temperature by approximately 10 to 15C compared with that of a standard thermostat, the Cosworth LowTemp Motorsport Thermostat improves coolant circulation through the engine by starting the process earlier than the original equipment thermostat.
Cosworth LowTemp Motorsport Thermostats are engineered with the optimum temperature range in mind for high performance racing use as it is very easy to over cool the engine by either removing the thermostat completely or using a thermostat that is not designed for the specific application. Additionally, over cooling can cause engine damage by preventing critical engine components from reaching their ideal operating temperature, altering the required clearances for safe operation. Another important feature of Cosworth LowTemp Thermostats is the ability to precisely control the flow of coolant when the valve opens. Unstable temperatures and even temperature fluctuation can cause severe engine damage and make it difficult to properly tune or calibrate the engine.
When combined with a correctly sized radiator and other high quality cooling system components, the Cosworth LowTemp Motorsport Thermostat will help to safely maximize engine performance by controlling the engine temperature at an optimum level.

Bugeye’d

27 May

A few months ago I showed off a set of Stoptech brakes that were headed to a customer in Norway. Not long ago, Stewart contacted us again for some new wheels to really help set the package off. We shipped out a sweet set of gold OZ Superleggera’s with Advan’s mounted and balanced (along with a set of Rallyarmor flaps). Clean bugeyes are a bit rare nowadays, and this car has all bases covered nicely. The net result is a pretty slick machine. Next up according to Stewart – what else, more power! We look forward to working with you on it!

Mods include:
MY02 WRX
2.5L closed deck block with forged internals
VF39
APS DR725 FMIC
MT6 STI gearbox
AST Competition coilovers
Whiteline swaybars F&R with drop links
14″ Stoptech front
13″ Stoptech rear
Benched to 340.6hp/474nm of torque
