Radiator caps The radiator caps purpose is to maintain a certain pressure in the coolant system. When the cap pressure is exceeded, the cap releases the pressure into the expansion tank. When the coolant cools down forming a negative pressure, the cap allows the flow back into the system.High pressure caps The original caps are usually rated to 0.7 - 0.9 bar. Cusco caps are rated at 1.3 bar.The boiling point of water raises by pressure: 0.0 bar: 100,0 C (atmospheric pressure) 0,7 bar: 115,4 C 1.0 bar:

High quality OEM oil filters keep oil clean long. Oil fiters are basically available for all cars. Some of the most usual filters are listed here.Some of the filters f.ex. 200SX SR20DET Black Top vs. Red Top, have the thread mentioned as there are 2 different threads used on the same engine.
Engine thermostat The thermostat regulates the temperature of engine coolant. Depending on the model, it opens in 60 to 90 Celsius, and closes again when the temperature is 5 to 10 C lower. In other words, the thermostat mixes the cooler liquid in the radiator to cool down the engine, and also helps the engine to reach the optimal operating temperature quickly by only allowing flow through the radiator when it is needed.Effect on engine temperature An 80 C thermostat does exactly what you think, it tries to k
OEM Waterpumps OEM-quality water pumps for well-known manufacturers.Car water pump is generally belt drive vane pump, which circulates engine coolant.
