It is specifically to increase flow and usually only done on the SC motors because the SC'* generate much more heat. I doublt it would help you unless you changed heads etc.
its also quite popular among the series 2 guys as many feel it helps prolong the life of their upper intake, which has yet to really be proven, but im sure it cant hurt, plus it helps youre car from getting so hot in the summer time...

lash have you read the techinfo information about the series 2 upper intake problems? or are you at least aware of them?

Oh, yes!!
I spent a good couple hours or more reading posts and the TechInfo articles regarding the upper intake problems. It has special meaning to me, because I've already had mine replaced by the dealer (ripped off) last year. As a result, I know the reason why I need to put in a 180* 'stat. I was just asking about the "drilled" 'stat.

I won't need to drill mine, from what I'm hearing, as I live in Florida and don't need to warm up any quicker, lol.

Both of mine came separate from ricer zone. Word of caution, my ricer zone people asked me which one I needed, paper or rubber o-ring. I said both cuz they were so cheap...you NEED both. I think one is $1 and the other is $0.79 or something.

And lash, with a drilled 180, your car will warm up SLOWER, not faster. Not really sure what the benefit is


EDIT: Read this.

And look at this...

DOH!! My bad!

I mis-read your first post. And thanks for the links. I don't know how I missed them when I did my search, but... Anyway, your links and the links inside your first link are VERY helpful. Good stuff.

I'll be doing that all this weekend for sure.

no problem!!!

instructions worked perfectly....
but I have a question. my car seems to be heating up to about 220
degrees. it was at 220 w/ the 195 t-stat..
is this still normal w/ the 180 degree t-stat...
i would think the car would be running cooler now. it does drop down
below 200 every so often.

I assume you bled it and took a nice cruise of about 15 miles or so? Then rebleed. It'* possible you have a small air pocket. It'* also possible your gauge is off pretty bad.
