A colder engine does not mean it'* making more power.

Tim.. Either an INTENSE or regular stat will do fine by you for winter. We'll probably be modding your car come spring.

Haro..most likely you are throwing the code because you have holes drilled in your Tstat and aren't getting up to temp fast enough.

Yes, of course. I'm assuming that the engine has been warmed up properly so the rings and bearings have expanded symetrically with the engine block and it is in closed loop.
