M7 180 deg F (82 deg C) Thermostat - 53-3M7104

Have you ever noticed how crisp and responsive your car was after that initial warm-up period, and wanted to keep that feeling for the rest of the day? The M7 180 deg F [82 deg C] Thermostat is the solution. Not only does the engine maintain its fresh-start power, but also the under-hood temperatures are greatly diminished.

A cooler running engine will perform better, make more power and have crisper throttle response. The M7 180 deg F Thermostat is calibrated a full 15 degrees cooler than the OE 195 degree F factory thermostat. Not only does the engine maintain its fresh-start power, but also the under-hood temperatures are greatly diminished (see comparison table below). This is great modification for the MINI owner that lives in a hot climate, or those who want maximum power and performance when driving hard at the track or local twisty road.

Cold Weather Alert: If you encounter weather below 50 deg F [10 deg C], please be aware that the ECU may throw a check engine light. This is no cause for alarm as the sensors are registering an cooler than normal condition.  This will not harm the engine. The check engine light will reset on its own or can be reset with a diagnostic tool. Please call if you have questions.

Please Note: The M7 Thermostat does not include a replacement gasket. Reuse the gasket from the OEM thermostat (this is easiest to remove when the vehicle and thermostat are cold).
