This is a drop-in direct replacement for Nissan`s OEM unit which opens at 76.5 degrees Celsius (170F) compared to the Nismo unit at 62 degrees Celsius (144F) providing cooler engine temperatures preventing unneeded engine heat for that extra performance edge on the circuit or street.
Product: Low-Temp Thermostat - SR
Part Number: 21200-RS520
Thermostat Opening: OEM: 76.5 C
Thermostat Opening: Nismo: 62.0C
Nismo Low-Temp Thermostat allows the radiator valve to achieve a lower temperature opening at 62.0 C compared to the OEM temperature at 76.5 C. This promotes earlier coolant circulation inside the engine, reducing the power loss caused by rising coolant temperature during high speed driving at a racetrack. The Nismo thermostat temperature is set within lower temperature ranges where a rich A/F mixture may occur.
