Operating temperature 65°C (OEM 78°C) Fully open temperature 75°C (OEM 90°C)
In a HONDA vehicle with a high power engine, the water temperature and engine power are in a close relationship, and when the water temperature rises, the ECU increases fuel consumption and ignition timing. Measures for avoiding a crisis such as retardation (correction MAP) are taken, and a sudden power-down starts.
This product sets the valve opening temperature (the temperature at which the main valve (watergate) “opens”) lower than that of a normal thermostat and circulates cooling water early to the radiator to maintain an ideal water temperature of 75°C. It is possible to set the temperature to around 85°C, suppress and prevent power down, thermal sag and knocking, and bring out the original engine power.
It can be completely bolted on from normal radiators to racing cars such as super endurance cars.
