    FoxSTI - I have no doubts about your set-up and your competence to test validate the effectiveness. I am NOT saying that all Mishimoto coolers are bad or don't work. I only make the observation that it is more difficult to predict or plan for capacity when you do not have specifications. In your case, you have solid data and sounds like a good set-up. I'm not a fan of the company (obviously) because of their practices and lack of any logic in a domain they pretend to play in.

    When I was at the track someone mentioned that they run water and water wetter ?
    and those cars actually race and see temps between 230-240F. But the did mention the water only.

    I see your photo. May not be related, but what are you making with the plywood?

    No worries. I just think I am lucky my setup is working as your sentiments are quite common among many. But its okay, let me enjoy my mishimoto while it lasts lol

    yes, distilled water and water wetter is a pretty standard setup for most hard core track cars. 230-240F is definitely not the norm.
    that's Emilio's car (one of them), plywood is a splitter.

    From a track day in May. Ambient temp 87', humidity 16%.
    Engine: K24A2, turboed, 510whp.
    Water temp sensors: OEM at Engine head, PLX at IM at front of head.
    Oil temp: oil pan
    Oil Press: sandwich adapter
    Oil Cooler: 2. One in the nose, one in a side pod.
    Oil: 5w20, mobil1, 8qts.
    Coolant: water and water wetter, still using OEM thermostat.

    Highest Oil Temp: 215'
    Highest Water Temp: 190'
    Highest IAT Temp: 160' :/

    I do oil analysis at every oil change. Report always comes back solid.


    When I had a S2000:
    Engine: F22C, 210whp
    Water temp sensors: OEM at Engine head
    Oil temp: sandwich adapter
    Oil Press: sandwich adapter
    Oil Cooler: 1. in the nose.
    Oil: 0w20, mobil1, 5.5qts.
    Coolant: water and water wetter, still using OEM thermostat, mishimotor radiator.

    Highest Oil Temp: 260'
    Highest Water Temp: 230'

    It seems like the independent oil coolers are doing their job well.

    Kam - what's the K24A2 installed in? I'm encouraged because that's the exact engine we are using in the Exocet. (With any luck, first fire-up is this weekend.) Setrab oil cooler installed and plumbed.

    That's great for your K motor, but consider that you are in a much less humid (less hot) enviroment.
    I maybe have to try the water wetter. I wonder if I can add it to my premixed coolant.

    Is Vegas less hot than where you are, because, the AVERAGE temp for June has been 90', with the max temp being 117' ... not the hottest, but certainly terrible weather.
    Mind you, the oil temps I see are only slightly higher in 110' weather (10-15 degrees).

    It's in a Noble (think, Exige like -- mid engine, no airflow into the engine bay, etc). I'm sure a lot of the oil temps being so low is due to the mile like (ok, around 25ft) lengths of oil line I have in the car, as well as the ton of oil.

    Ouch!

    On my '15 Fiesta ST, switched to a Mishimoto radiator and custom oil cooler setup and have run 2 track days so far (Streets - 80 degrees outside temp, Autoclub - 80 degrees outside temp) and highest coolant temp was 207 and highest oil temp was 230. Running stage 2 Cobb tune with aftermarket intercooler and piping as well.
