I tried searching but couldnt find an answer for what I was looking to do. Living in Southern Florida its become readily apparent that I need an oil cooler on my car. Im also putting in an aftermarket gauge setup to replace the factory triple gauge pod. Here is where my problem lies, Mishimoto only makes a thermostatic plate with one additional npt port for sensors, however the non thermostatic plate has two ports for sensors. I feel I need a thermostat so I can get my oil up to operating temps quickly. Can I get the non thermostatic plate and then cut in an inline thermostat? This way I can use the two ports on the non thermostatic plate for my oil pressure and temp sensors and get the benefits of a thermostat as well. Is there any reason why I shouldnt run it this way? Thanks for the input.
