Hi everyone. .

I have bought a string ray and having it shipped from north carolina to Saudi Arabia.

Was wondering does anyone know how and where can I get a different thermostat for the C7?

In addition has anyone installed any additional cooling for the engine oil?

Thanks

Ahmed; I am not sure you will need to, but given the ambient temps. seen there I could be wrong. Is it customary to change those sorts things on all vehicles located there?

Not the additional oil cooling. .but most of the older models had different thermostats between American specs cars and middle east cars. . Specifically that the fan starts operating at lower temps.

Temperature 8 the summer varies. the max is usually 50 Celsius but usually more to 42 Celsius

Wow! That's 107.6 to 122 degrees F. Your concerns might be more suited to your car's AC system. I bet there is not much demand for convertibles in your part of the world?

Vendors like SLP have a 160 degree Tstat for the C7
SLP Performance 100229 160 deg Thermostat

Also then have a tuner command the fan rotation begin at 190 deg (89 C) where stock it is off and up the rotation percentage as the water temp increases
