Default GrimmSpeed 160 Degree Thermostat GB - Product Release!




First rule of thumb, excess heat kills engines and kills power. GrimmSpeed is on your side with our new 160 Degree Thermostat. Our thermostat will make an immediate and direct impact on your engine running temps. The 160 Degree T-Stat will bring your engine coolant temps down 20-30 Degrees.

Many OEM style T-Stats can have a very negative effect on your vehicle, if they fail, they fail closed and your car will overheat. But not ours! If there is a failure with our T-Stat, it will fail in the OPEN position allowing coolant to flow and keep your engine temps under control.

Given the fact most Subarus are turbo'd, this gives you even more of a reason to want to keep those coolant temps down. In turbo'd applications, the engine coolant must also cool the turbo and the engine oil. This places a greater strain on your oem thermostat...all the more reason to install the GrimmSpeed 160 Degree Thermostat!

During testing, we have also found that our 160 Degree Thermostat keeps the engine coolant at a more stable temperature.


Quick Facts:
20-30 Degree cooler engine coolant temps
Horsepower gains due to the ability to tune more agressively
Less chance of the engine killing detonation
Fails in an OPEN position compared to competitors products

This sounds very tempting.

What were the conditions that you performed your testing under?

Also, how does this thermostat reduce water temps by so much?

The test was done under normal driving conditions. About 1/3 of it was city driving and 2/3's of it was highway/traffic driving. The thermostat starts to open sooner than the OEM thermostat which in turn cools the coolant more than the OEM.

People should also keep in mind that the factory T-Stat is a 170 degree thermostat as opposed to the 160 degree thermostat. I personally run a 160 degree thermostat in my own car and have been very pleased with this item (being that it is both and upgrade as well as a safety item).

If I didn't already have one, I would gladly jump on this as Rich and Grimmspeed make excellent products.

If the extreme cold states your heat will take longer to heat up and may not be as hot.
