    Cool Collar for a 12 degree < ?

    How much difference does a sustained 12 degree temp reduction make a sustained speeds - ie freeway? I know if we are talking track where there are high loads it may make a difference...
    Longevity is the objective and looks are secondary.

    45 views and no opinion? Either the question is so stupid as to not warrant an answer, or no one knows. I would think that any degree of additional cooling would be beneficial but I know it's not nearly as sexy as a dual-fan front radiator from Elephant.

    12 is better than nothing. Will the cool collar give you that much of a drop? Many people ridicule them but I think they are worth the minimal cost if you actually saw that drop.

    Bought one last summer when I still had the 2.2E in the car. I saw absolutely no change in temp's on highway or anywhere.
