Yes I remember that thread. That was back when I had the 180 stat with the 4 holes drilled in it. Once my engine was fully warmed up back then, I used a digital infrared thermometer (lacking an autotap) to measure temps around the top of the engine, specifically the thermostat housing, and the temps were always 185 F and never warmer.
Now with the single hole, the temp readings are 195 F.
I'm not going to worry about it though. It is not affecting performance or fuel economy and has got to be better than using the original 195 blind stat.
I just received my ZZP hi-speed fan switch kit. Man, it looks like a complicated hook-up.
Got to open up the engine bay fuse box and cut some wires. :(
dbkt2 - the diagram is illustrated for a GTP. Is it identical to the SSEi ?
Well I've got all winter to figure it out before the next warm season.
