    160 deg. Thermostat?

    Hi all,
    I wanted some info and opinions on putting the different thermostat in my car before a tune. Would it be a good idea in a DD? I just put a new stock temp. thermostat in it about 5,000 miles ago..
    Any info/advice would be great!
    thanks!

    I elected to go with a 180 degree thermostat on our car. It generally runs anywhere from 183-195 depending upon speed and engine load. Whatever you go with, remember that you need to change your fan settings.

    The 160 stat/housing sets for our cars all operate at about 175-180 so do not worry about it being too cold. I put the 160 in over a year ago to help keep all other items cooler (trans, p.s.) that the coolant works on.
