    Default Race Warm ups..

    You guys who race, what do you guys do to warm up your engine. Would take alot of idling to get that oil warm. I was thinking about installing a oil heater this winter while i had the motor out.

    Every Pro Stocker does that. Very smart in my book.
    We just fire it in the pits to insure everything's set and take that warmth to the lanes in the block.

    We have a heater on the dry sump. We plug that in, fire the boat up and I hold it at about 3000 RPM to get oil flowing. I don't like just letting it idle when cold. Warm the engine up to about 135-145 or so and shut her down. We verify oil temp is 175+ and go!!

    Great Idea, I know that I have one on my boat and it heats the oil very well especially in the morning before starting. I keep it plugged in all day between rounds. And then usually fire the motor and warm it up right before a round. the outside head temp around 140

    Drain your oil into a bucket. Preheat oven to 200. Put bucket into oven for 30 minutes and turn. Keep in oven for another 15 minutes until light brown on top. Remove and let sit for 10 minutes for slight cooling. Add spice and return back to engine. Start immediately.

    What type of heaters and what brand are you using? Looks like there are internal and external heaters made by moroso and stefs when searching summit and jegs. External doesnt seam like a good idea for a marine app.

    I notice he leaves out the trade secrets like only use powdered spices. Ground spices cause excessive bearing wear and don't use salt it will raise your pressure and hold water.

    One lap? I assume your talking about circle racing? Takes a long time to heat 12 quarts of oil.
