They are supposed to work that way.

Yeah they are designed to work that way but people assume that the oil cooler wont see any oil until it hits the magic thermostat figure which isn't true. On a car like ours with a high pressure high flow pump you will still pump enough oil through a cooler to cause it to cool down too much during winter conditions.

High pressure has nothing to do with it. If you have a cooling setup with very low pressure drop, you'll flow more to it when both paths are open. At a minimum, you want some flow to prevent thermal shocking.

Mark Is there any evidence of an aftermarket cooler actually over cooling the oil on a s2000? I understand the principle of it but what's the reality? What temp do you get on motorway driving?

Yes:

My follow-up solution was to tape over 1/3 the front bumper opening in cold weather.

You've lost me. This thread says the oil ran rather warm?

"The drive in the morning to the track was COLD. The air temp was only 22F with my oil only reaching 60C (140F) despite the Mocal thermostat being rated for 170F. I am glad I decided to stick with the standard 10w-30!"

Track temps are in both articles. In the series is also hot weather testing with additional oil temp info. It is for my specific oil cooler setup of which there is an article on it.

Default OEM Oil cooler or emissions device

If I remove the OEM oil cooler donut, what do I do with the two flow tubes that run to the block?
