all a 180 t stat will do will make your car take longer to get into closed loop, more time in open loop more gas (runs rich in open loop).
yep, cold air is more dense, more air = more power. but that 180 t stat will drop underhood temps by, maybe 10* tops, not very much, that in combination with the tiny amount of time that the air spends in your engine bay before going into the TB and then combusting ( maybe 2 seconds ) that air going into the combustion chamber is now, what? 1/6 of a degree cooler? .2hp? .3hp? thats being generous
