'Cause who doesn't want to talk bikes??? KTM EXC and Vstrom here...And I still ride my 1988 and 2001 CR500. Bought them both brand new from the local honda dealer!!!!
What the heck does this have to do with what people are talking about????????
Very interesting findings CR500. Those are some serious restrictions. I think you're onto something here.
Also didn't know they even made "inlet thermostats". Looks like a bad idea, but there must be a reason? Did the 5.4L have a normal thermostats? Those didn't seem to have nearly the overheating issues of the Ecoboosts.
Regarding the oil cooler, there must be some kind of restriction in that plastic fitting otherwise there would be no flow thru the cooler. Water always take the past of least resistance. A wide open hose vs a cooler with a bunch of small passages, nothing would flow. Anyone care to sacrifice theirs?
