Product Details

Part Number: MMTS-RSX-02
Brand: Mishimoto

The Mishimoto racing thermostat for the 2002-2006 Acura RSX will promote greater cooling efficiency throughout your engine. The Mishimoto racing thermostat 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 (68°C) than standard thermostats (78°C), also allowing the coolant to flow through the engine sooner thus reducing and maintaining cooler engine temperatures.

Due to the manufacturer's price control policy, this item may be excluded from promotions and discounts

Novice mechanic
Rod Arana | October 3rd, 2019
Installation was very straight forward. Looked at a couple of DIYS before diving in. Direct fit. Keeps temp nice and good. Swapped it at 346,000 miles in my 02 RSX Type S. Would be again!
Mishimotto radiator
Pasquale Monfreda | August 14th, 2019
Great quality radiator. I would recommend purchasing the Mishimotto coolant sensor, along with the Mishimotto Thermostat. Setting for the thermostat is set lower than stock. Keeping your engine cooler than normal.
Keepin Cool...

Supporting Mod

This thermostat works as intended, but my stock radiator either isn't working efficient enough or I need a full aluminium one. My temps still increase well over the desired opening temp. I had to set my fan temp (using K-Pro) for about 176 I believe. All in all, the driving temp is lower, but the idle temp still creeps. This part needs supporting mods.
