    Is there a way on the code to tweak the engine temperature to be very high but still getting high mileage?

    Not too sure what you mean, if a car's cooling system is performing correctly, the only way to get the enigne hot is to burn lots of fuel and make lots of heat to overwhelm the system..

    if you want the engine to just run at a higher temp, adjust the thermostat value on the radiator
    if you want the enigne to run hotter under medium loads, and well overheat under high load, reduce the radiator effectiveness...

    I have read from ecomodder.com that those trying to run least amount of petrol possible are changing coolant of engine and thermostat so that they can run engine hotter for better efficiency, they also block cooling and run engine only under load, shut if off and coast at neutral.

    I don't want the coolant to be hotter, I want the OIL to be hotter. I know changing engine friction makes the oil be hotter, but RPMs drop too fast, and if I lower friction oil doesn't pass 100ºC xd

    If your oil is hotter, your coolant is going to be hotter. Your coolant system is always going to fail first, it has a boiling point of around 120-130 PSI. Oil has a much higher boiling point. If you tell is what you're trying to achieve we might be able to help you better.

    I'm not sure if Beam supports it, but you could try telling the thermostat to open later. That will raise the coolant temperature, and in turn will raise the engine and oil temp.

    Isn't this exactly what made 1970s and 1980s cars run horrible?

    increase friction and dynamic friction, increase radiator effectiveness a slight bit, raise the thermostat to the temp you want, and increase burn efficiency (if you want better mileage, especially since increasing friction sucks gas mileage out of a car quickly.)

    Thank a lot, it's fun.


    Therefore I thing that change this setting (colder or a little bit hotter) have not really any impact, except an engine failure due to oil temperature too high.

    I'll made few tries (eg: 15) and view what that change on the engine (with engine info plugin)

    Code:
    "cylinderWallTemperatureDamageThreshold":130
    turn this up a slight bit, and add an oil cooler.

    Thanks for your reply, I'll made few tests with hot/cold temps
