    Thermostat

    Im sure this has been asked several time but here it goes. How do I tell which thermostat is in my 04 GTO? What is the outside diff. between the early model and the late model. I wanna get a 160 deg. but I dont know which fits my car. Please help, thank you.
    Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, if it wasn't for fords our tools would rust

    I don't think that the outside housing would be diff. But I'd look into the SLP one if you were going to get one mine works fine.

    I know that one is just a therm. and the other is a therm. built into the housing. I just dont wanna tear it apart to find out.

    The housing the thermostat are separate. SLP sells a 160 that fits the housing. To take advantage of the theromstat you'll need to reprogram the fan settings.

    When was it built? Pretty sure the '03 built cars had the old setup but don't know when it was changed over.
