Hey,

I wanted to know how long it takes for engine oil to reach normal operating temperature. I do know that engine oil temp and coolant temp are different and that your coolant could be at a normal operating temp but your oil could not be there yet.

Just wondering....

If it matters (which I'm sure it matters a little) I have an 07 FG2 completely stock.

My real concern with this is engaging vtec before the oil gets to the proper operating temp.

I heard however long it takes for the coolant to warm up x 2.
Say it take 5 minutes of drive for the coolant to reach operating temp, it takes approximately 5 more mins for the oil to be FULLY at OT.
