Roush 2010 427r

Oil pressure, my experience has taught me the cooler the engine the longer the life. Purchased an oil cooler for my Roush. I have read about concerns relating to oil pressure drops with installed oil coolers. I'd appreciate any opinions and thoughts.

I guess I never thought about it, use mine just as a DD. Don't remember the subject coming up at the Roush site (Fnsweet.com) unless for those who track theirs.

Actually you don't want the oil too cool. It is advisable to use a thermostat in your oil system just like you do in your water cooling system. You waste hp and gas with too cold an oil. I use the thermostat from Canton kind of bulky but it flows more that way.

I realize that it gets hotter in Florida than in the midwest, but I track my 427R 3-4 weekends a year and have never had an issue with oil pressure or temp. Had an issue once with water temp, but that was driver error. :p

IF MY CAR WENT AS FAST AS THE MONEY I SPEND ON IT, I'D WIN EVERY RACE
