Default 160 or 180 stat

I posted this on clubgp.com a few days ago but got no responses( I think these guys don't like the idea of our cars looking better and costing more than their GPs)

I would try a drilled 180 for starters. That'* what I run & no problems so far. The 160 should only be used under serious modified conditions.

Well.. I agree with Mighty Mouse here




But I checked the link.. and it seems you're not gettin any SES lights or any kinda error.. so I say if you it'* working.. then leave it.. save the $$ for some nice octane booster or something else. If you're concern about the fan not coming on.. just start it up one day and let it idle on your driveway for 10 minutes+ or so.. I don't know bout your year but mine you can barely hear the fan coming on ( even when I turn the A/C on and KNOW they are on by lookin under the hood to see them both turning )
