Sorry Lowrider, but I realy do not care what that article says. Just because it'* in "techinfo" does not make it true. Give me the person that wrote it and he and I will discuss why it is wrong.

If I remember, there should be an o-ring. Pull yours out and look down in the hole, I bet it'* in there. If not, get an o-ring that makes a snug fit around the PCV and the inside diameter of the hole.


Also, going to a 160 thermo without letting the PCM know (ie - getting a chip or a reprogram) will net you 3 maybe 4 less miles per gallon on the highway and not help you out in any respect. I have a 160 thermo because that is what my Hypertech chip requires. I get the same mileage with that combo as I do a stock thermo and chip.

I'm not saying a 180 will give you more horsepower. It will however give a little insurance against heat related failures without noticably affecting MPG.

why cant you accept you are wrong? This is my last post here, I will not argue. Ask any gearhead, administrator, ect. about the 180 t-stats. Glad you installed a 180 Luxuries. I cant wait for the mods lol
