Even with a deep sump and added oil, it's possible to cause severe engine damage or have a failure due to the oil becoming too thin and aerated. Aerated oil results in the AOS being overloaded, which can lead to oil ingestion into the intake, causing the engine to smoke or even hydro-lock!
The problem is most modern engines use a water to oil heat exchanger as an oil-warmer for faster engine warm up. Since the oil temperature is directly proportional to coolant temperature, another band-aid is the addition of a 3rd radiator to the vehicle along with our 160F low temperature thermostat.
To solve this problem, deleting the oil to water heat exchanger and adding our oil cooler delete along with an external oil cooler (either air-to-oil or a larger water-to-oil) will lower oil temperatures to a safe level. The adapter plate is machined for a -10 oring AN fitting and we supply -10 o-ring to -12 fittings. Inclusion of an external oil thermostat along with a thermostatic switch to trigger the fan on the oil cooler is recommended to ensure fast warm up and so the cooler doesn't see extreme oil pressures at star-tup that may cause damage in cold climates.
