  • Fits the 1992–1999 BMW E36
  • Activates at lower temperature so coolant flows through system earlier
  • Allows for cooler engine temperatures
  • Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty


The Mishimoto BMW E36 Racing Thermostat fits all E36 applications. It will promote greater cooling efficiency throughout your engine. Mishimoto racing thermostats will significantly lower high engine temperature produced by modified and upgraded turbo applications. Once the engine is fully warmed up the Mishimoto racing thermostat will open up at a lower temperature than standard thermostats, also allowing the coolant to flow through the engine sooner thus reducing and maintaining cooler engine temperatures.
