    Not sure what kind of oil cooler you have fitted Dave, is it a small radiator type?

    if so one way that I have heard of is to blank out a section, say a half, with duct tape and experiment until you achieve the result you need.

    Another thing that works, well with a Jab engine anyway, is to fit insulation around the oil filter if possible and as you have a seperate tank preventing heat loss there will also help

    Good luck

        Yep duct tape works pretty well. If its an AX with an HKS engine you'll probably find you need to blank off a lot more than half for winter time!
