Porsche 911 Boxster Cayman LN Engineering Low Temp Thermostat Insert 106061
LN Engineering 160 Fahrenheit - low temperature thermostat insert for Porsche 911, Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman with model years 1997 to 2008.
Did you know the factory thermostat doesn't start to even open until 186.8F and doesn't fully open until almost 210F? This causes hot spots inside your engine that can result in cracked heads and cylinder failures from overheating. This 160F low temperature thermostat is not available from any other vendor and features a calibrated, German-made 160F thermostat. It is calibrated to allow thermostat opening a full 20-25F degrees earlier than the factory thermostat.
That means that the the low temperature thermostat is designed to be fully open by 180-185F, allowing for full flow to the cooling system to maximise cooling potential. With high on-track water and oil temperatures, the 9A1 engine can use every bit of cooling it can get.
The LN Engineering thermostat should be installed anytime a new Genuine Porsche water pump is installed, which should be replaced no later than 4 years or 50,000.
Please be sure to remove your bumper cover and clean out your radiators for maximum cooling benefit.
Application note: Even if you have cleaned out your radiators, please be advised, some late-model cars do not report actual coolant temperature, so some users will not see any visible change in operating temperature when fitted with a 160F low temperature thermostat.
Replaces Porsche part numbers 996 106 125 52 (53). Does not fit GT2, GT3, or Turbo models.
Please note that the thermostat housing gasket is sold separately.
