Please Note: "Blemished" items are parts that exhibit minor aesthetic defects such as scratches, dents, minor machining defects, or laser engraving defects that do not affect the functionality of the part. "Blemished" items are fully backed by the factory warranty. Photos shown are not of actual item. Photos of a specific item can be provided upon request.

For this specific product, the housing sustained minor scratches/blemishes prior to assembly. The product itself has never been used and is in mechanically perfect condition.

The C7 Corvette's water to oil heat exchanger is appropriate for a street car, but is wildly insufficient for track or performance use. Those looking to delete the factory heat exchanger and replace it with a high-efficiency air to oil cooler can use Improved Racing's thermostatic adapter to maintain precise control of oil temperatures.

Improved Racing's adapter features a built-in thermostat that automatically bypasses the cooler until the oil reaches operating temperature. No need to worry about over-cooling the oil or long warm-up times!

The adapter features standard female -08AN O-ring boss ports that accept optional male adapter fittings for -8AN, -10AN or -12AN lines.

Two interchangeable OUT ports provide flexibility in line routing. A plug is included for the unused port, or an optional sensor adapter fitting may be used for an 1/8" NPT or M12x1.5 sensor. The extra port can also be used as a turbo oil feed or for plumbing an oil accumulator.

Installation Notes
  • Note: This oil adapter is designed for O-ring boss fittings with a straight thread length of 0.500" or less. We recommend using our fittings in order to guarantee proper fitment and seal.
  • We recommend using a straight hose end fitting for the OUT port and a 90-degree hose end fitting for the IN port. For additional clearance, use our low profile hose end fitting on the IN port (part number DO-090-08-08 (-8AN lines) or DO-090-10-08 (-10AN lines). Note only one O-ring boss adapter fitting is needed when using this low-profile hose end.
