OK, finished the thermostat swap. Installed the Mishimoto 200 degree thermostat as I wanted to raise the low end oil temp a bit over 185. Easiest Elise project yet. Simple unscrew, swap, reinstall. The only challenge was getting a wrench on the nut but hey, at least its accessible.
Now, oil climbs to 200 degrees and stays there.
roughly how long is it taking to get to 200 for you form a cold start?
i just installed my plate with 200 t-stat this past weekend but haven't got my temp sensor wired in yet (probably wont till next oc)
