Not bad for a 12-year-old. Not bad at all. This new thermostat is drilled with 4 1/16" holes. We'll see how it performs compared to stock 195, undrilled 180, and 180 drilled at 1/8". Thanks Pooky!

Back to thermostats...those 180'*. I notice Hector has them, but not for my model. Is it still recommended? Or does mine not generate the heat to demand the 180 t-stat?

Great, cuz that will be my first order from the Bonneville store, if it applies. I plan on generating some heat this spring/summer, esp with that new intake...once it is ready
