Default Did a bit of work to it today

I changed out the thermostat to my drilled 180, it has two 1/16 holes in it. Normally it would run just a bit over the 90celcius/190Farenhite mark, now it runs just under the 90/190 mark, if i had to guess i would say 85/185. Thats in 72 degree weather as well, AC on, and AC off. Car obviously takes longer to warm up now, but thats alright!

it will take alot longer in the winter too, unless you do alot of city driving right when you start the car up. I had to change mine back because I didnt have heat for 10 min. :(

Just cover 1/3 to 1/2 of your radiator in the winter.
