    Oil cooler cover for cold weather

    Does any company make a removable cover for the oil cooler, allowing engine to run warmer in the winter.

    Anti Splat Aero makes an adjustable shutter. Most of us use adjustable duct tape.

    The effect of tape is very engine/airplane/OAT dependent. Start slowly and find what YOUR airplane needs in temps YOU fly in!
