Here at StangHi Performance we are constantly testing different Performance Upgrades.
We have found that these (2) Simple mods make a HUGE improvement in 2011-2017 Coyote 5.0L Mustangs & F-150's
1) RP 170 degree Thermostat
The 2nd generation Ford-50 thermostat is made with the same exact components as your OEM unit, including a rubberized diaphragm, and is only available from Reische Performance. It's a direct-fit unit with proper bypass control so you're guaranteed maximum efficiency from your cooling system. No Chinese knock-offs here, this is the highest quality unit currently available for this application. 100% made in USA.
This thermostat will provide the best possible heat dissipation from your setup and even deliver better overall performance than our competitor's 160° thermostats. Reische believes the 170° opening temp is the ideal balance for high performance engines, providing high flow to your radiator by mid-180 temps while still providing good all season performance. With proper fan settings your coolant temps in cool weather will be in the 170s and in hot weather the 180s, giving those running high levels of timing and/or boost added protection against engine-damaging detonation as well as maximum hp.
All Reische Performance thermostats ship with a new O-ring and are backed by a 5 YEAR WARRANTY.
Ideally the fan settings in your tune should be lowered to see the best possible heat dissipation from your cooling system. Otherwise a low temp thermostat will only be effective when the vehicle is moving because heat cannot be removed unless there is air passing through the radiator. However, there is not a handheld programmer available at this time capable of modifying fan settings in most of the new Ford engine management systems. The fan speed tables will need to be adjusted through a SHP custom tune or via tuning software. These new systems estimate coolant temps based on readings from a dry head temp sensor. However these ‘inferred’ ECT values can be more volatile and vary from vehicle to vehicle. For example Mustangs typically read around 8-10° hotter whereas an F150 may read closer to actual coolant temps. This means that a vehicle using our 170° thermostat could see ECT anywhere between 165-205°, depending upon conditions and fan settings. We rely on your feedback, so please let us know if you become aware of any new developments in managing the fan settings for these applications.
2) JLT 3.0 Oil Separator for RPP/VMP SC Coyote
New Design gets even more oil!!
Includes PCV check valve to stop boost from pushing the collected oil from the separator!
This kit is specific for the 2011-14 Mustang GT passenger side, with Roush, VMP, Whipple (Rear Feed) or FRPP Superchargers.
Also fits 2015-2017 GT with Roush, VMP Supercharger. It does NOT fit 2015-17 GT with Whipple Supercharger.
During the process of venting crankcase pressure back through your intake track, large amounts of oil, in the form of vapors, can coat your blower rotors, intercooler fins and even dilute your gas, lowering its octane level. This happens on all engines and is even worse when supercharged as crankcase pressures are increased.
To combat this, we have developed an oil separator of our own design. Milled from solid billet aluminum this is a rock solid piece. It has a knurled tank base for easy removal to drain the spent oil and an O ring seal to prevent any leaks. We took this unit a step further and added a metal mesh filter to the intake side that collects the vapors, allowing them to grow into larger oil droplets and drains back into the tank. The tank holds 3 oz of fluid, while that may not sound like a lot, you shouldn’t see that much oil in your PCV system. Drain it every 2-2500 miles and you will never come close to filling it.
