Product Information

THE NEXT LEVEL OF TEMPERATURE CONTROL

The N54, N55 and S55 engines are no strangers to oil cooling problems, that’s why we recommend installing the MSL Oil Thermostat, especially for cars that are tuned. The standard oil temperature will reach around 120°C (250°F) with a normal driving style. The MSL Oil Thermostat will open at a lower temperature than the standard oil thermostat (at 85°C / 185°F) and will keep the temperature stable between 95 and 105°C (200 and 220°F), depending on the car model.

Installing the MSL thermostat ensures a cooler oil temperature which will result in more stable performance, but above all this improves the reliability of the engine. It is equipped with a real thermostat, not an always open solution. The oil will still reach the operating temperature at the same time as a stock thermostat.

Installation Instructions

Suitable for F87 M2 Coupe (N55), F20 M135i Hatch, F22 M235i Coupe, F23 M235i Convertible, F30 335i Sedan, F31 335i Touring, F34 335i Gran Turismo, F32 435i Coupe, F33 435i Convertible and F36 435i Gran Coupe.

Note: You will need the N54 Oil Thermostat for the E-Series 135i and 335i with the N55 engine.

The Thermostat is plug-and-play and made out of a solid block of high-grade aluminium at Mosselman's own facility. It is equipped with a real thermostat, not an always open solution. The oil will still reach the operating temperature at the same time as a stock thermostat.

Additionally to the thermostat, Mosselman have oil cooler kits for the 1-Series E8x and the 3-Series E9x. We advise the Oil Cooler Kit for cars that use the full performance of the car during track use. The kits are available as single or twin cooler kits. The single cooler kit replaces the OEM cooler on the right side of the car, the twin kit will add an extra cooler on the left side of the car.

The standard oil thermostat will reach around 120 degrees Celsius with a normal driving style. The MSL Oil Thermostat will open at a lower temperature than the standard oil thermostat (at 85 degrees Celsius) and will keep the temperature stable between 95 and 105 degrees Celsius, depending on the car model.

Note: The Oil Thermostat Installation kit prevents the Oil Thermostat from leaking and is highly recommended when installing the MSL Oil Thermostat. The kit includes 2 x O-ring for the oil hose and 1x rubber oil filter housing gasket. We advise to add it to your order."

Great experience dealing with the team at SouthernBM. Sean in particular was fantastic with his knowledge, timely responses and ultimately work performed.

Sean arranged a Quaife LSD for my 135i and I couldn't be happier. He advised multiple seals and bearings needed replacing unbeknownst to me so these were done as well. Now I have a more reliable car and one with tonnes more mechanical grip!

One of (if not THE most) professional outfits I’ve dealt with - in the auto industry or otherwise. Needless to say, all work was carried out as promised and to an impeccable standard. Thank you Sean and team - you’ve renewed my faith in the auto business!
