Racing Beat designed the RX-8 Radiator and Oil Cooler Screens in an effort to provide additional protection to the "exposed" Radiator and Oil Coolers. Although Mazda positioned the A/C condenser radiator and oil coolers in a strategic position to allow maximum airflow, this positioning also allows potential, and costly!, damage from road debris!!
The oil coolers on the RX-8 are positioned behind the outer openings in the nose in order to benefit from the cool intake air. However, these cooler are in the direct line of fire from any piece of road debris that can enter these openings! Racing Beat has developed a set of stainless steel protective screens to minimize the potential for damage to these critical components.
These screens are sold as individual units. Review the following ordering information:
A. Manual transmission RX-8 requires two (2) screens.
B. Automatic transmission equipped RX-8 is equipped with only one (1) oil cooler and requires only one (1) screen.
Installation of the screens requires the removal of the front nose, and be accomplished with the provided step-by-step instructions. Installation can be undertaken by one person in about an hour and requires only simple hand tools.
Combine these Oil Cooler Screens with the, Racing Beat A/C Condenser Screen for the ultimate in protection. Buy both sets of screens and save! Click here for more details on the Screen Package Set.
