PART NUMBER: 61-2245
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. 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.
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.
