Vital, you are correct...most will not see any improvements. The 180 swap is mostly needed for the pulley'd SC'*. Heat is generated quickly and needs to be under control before it starts.

Matter of fact, being winter and quite cold...I changed to a 195 fo the winter with my 3.4 pulley.

Hmm..I might change mine over. I could just pin in the high speed fan shutoff into the cabin for the winter. I have the wiring and such to do so. The 195 would improve overall winter gas and engine performance?
