    What oil temp is bad

    I don't have a major problem with doing it. I swapped the thermostat for a lower temperature one and just use a plate to blank the cooler off through the winter.

    There'll probably be a thermostat (I don't know much about the TD kit) but it's usually quite high as default. Even with a thermostat there is still oil pass through though so it'll still cool a reasonable amount compared to not running a cooler thus giving the need to blank it off come winter time.

    An oil cooler should sort it out without too much issue especially on the road. With an oil cooler fitted I don't think you'll trouble the temps much on the road and will probably want to block it come winter time.

    I have my alarm set for 120 and usually cool down when it reaches around that point up but will let it get to 125ish on occasions. Do you have an oil cooler and is it on track or the road?

    Welcome on board. We have this club track date coming up soon - there are 6 of us booked on so far https://www.gt86.org.uk/forums/forums/topic/8757-bedford-autodrome-11th-aug/
  7. Anarchy Motive Goliath shift knob for sale. The shift knob has been custom engraved with the Batman logo and the 6 speed shift pattern. It's a hefty old beast weighing in at 657g and so makes a considerable difference to the shift feel (especially helping with that pesky shift into second when the cars cold). Shifter originally cost approximately £100 including the engraving, delivery from the states and import duty, etc so grab yourself a bargain as I'm looking for £50. Collection preferred (I'm based on the South Staffs / West Midlands border) but delivery available at cost. Any questions please ask.

    Oils and fuels to use

    Yes Toyota also say 0w20 is preferred but to say 0w30 is wrong is incorrect. Toyota or Subaru wouldn't void a warranty claim for either oil as they're both stated in the manual.
