The C7 Corvette LT engines run extremely hot when tracked or with higher horsepower output, during our testing on our C7 Z06, we saw 289 degrees of oil temperature along with 261 degrees of engine coolant temperature at only 78 degrees ambient temperature on only lap 3 before we pulled off the track!
We knew in order to keep engine coolant temps down we needed to design an efficient oil cooler system capable of pulling heat from the oil without putting back into the already stressed engine coolant system.
To accomplish this we in-house CAD designed a full system starting with a replacement brake duct made from high strength aluminum which houses a proven high-quality Setrab oil cooler connected to the engine with high quality AN hose and hose ends, ending with our LT series engine block adapter. During our testing (Test vehicle: Z06 with a D1SC Procharger with vertical front mount intercooler making 700whp) from our base session to the session with our system installed, we saw a rise of 9 degrees ambient temp and still managed to lower oil temps by 14 degrees and coolant temps by 22 degrees, all while pushing the car harder lap time-wise and we didn’t have to pull off track!
