180 stat will lower your temp while driving. wont help in bumper to bumper traffic though. it will work good for the summer but you need to go back to the 195 for winter.

I don't run above 200, unless stop and go, then it'* @ 200-205.

You guys could use a flush maybe?

Yea, I had mine flushed and they added some other crap to it to help cool things down or something. But the 180 does make a difference I noticed. It was worth it.
