well that could be, but like i said it only happens with hard R or L turns... i dunno... i have to have my service dude check it out when he puts on my magnaflow'*

alrite also on a different note... i added my 180T-Stat and my car still sits at 200. i made sure it was a 180 also i got it from ZZPerformance...any input?? its been 3days now. temp here its no higher than 80 and no lower than 73.....FL sucks... BUT IM glad i dont have to deal with snow!

The thermostat will not make your car run at 180 degrees. It will just open the coolant flow to allow it to run sooner (180 vs 195). To really take advantage of it and have your car stay cooler you need a PCM adjustement to kick fans on at 180 or some sort of manual fan switch.

Hey nitro, did U ever resolve the sound when taking hard L/R turns? I'm having the same issue and it seems to be pointing to the power steering. Just wondering what you found out...

Thx,
