The Perrin Performance oil cooler will reduce engine oil temperatures and extend engine life. The FA20 engine in the Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyoa 86 does not have a factory oil cooler and therefore runs MUCH hotter oil temperatures. The Perrin oil cooler tames oil temperatures keeping them at a consistent 85-90C (185f-194f) where the engine makes the most power.andnbsp; This is a COMPLETE kit and even includes a new OEM Subaru oil filter!
Setrab Heat Exchanger
Each Perrin oil cooler maximizes heat dissipation without pressure build-up using a high quality Setrab core. Oil-ways are interspaced with airway corrugations providing optimize heat transfer. While the oil passages use "turbulators" to break down boundary layer effects in the oil flow.andnbsp;
The Perrin Performance filter adapter uses a Mocal Sandwhich plate with an integrated 85C (185F) thermostat to properly regulate oil temperture.
Perrin's oil cooler kit uses lightweight Aeroquip brand -10 hose that is rated for 250psi and 215F. Each hose consists of anodized -10 push-lock type aluminum hose ends. These fittings are designed to fit without the need for clamps, but Perrin takes the extra step and add a clamp ensuring they will never come apart. Unlike some kits that make you assemble your hoses, Perrin preassembles them for you!
Sean's Application Notes:
If you are headed to the track with your FT86 an oil cooler is a MUST! The FA20 engine is a high compression motor which generates a lot of heat. You can see as high as 275*F even on a spirited drive through the mountains. Regularly running the motor with oil temperatures exceeding 270* will reduce performance and the lifespan of the engine. The Perrin oil cooler kit is one of my favorites on the market - everything is included with the kit and detailed installation instructions make this a great weekend project.
Fitment Notes and Installation Instructions:
This oil cooler is not compatible with manual transmission 2017+ Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 unless you swap a 2013-2016 factory air box or install the Perrin cold air intake.
