Default 180 T-Stat

Ok here'* my situation...

I just bought a 180 t-stat..

..My only mod is an air intake and winter is coming up here soon. ..and i'm not a heavy racer every day. Is this 180 really gonna be necessary at this point in time? ..and if i did put it on reguardless..what'* the situation for winter look like having a 180 tstat compared to 195.. i'm wondering if i should do a few mods before i should even worry about a 180.

You're SC, so it doesn't matter as much (no plastic upper intake), but I know un-drilled 180'* run fine in the winter. I personally would go ahead. Heat is still the enemy. I don't think you'll notice any negative effect on the climate control this winter.

Besides, it'll give you something else in your sig
