If the pcm think you are hotter 160,the electric fan work sooner???because if the temp raise at 185 with a 160 stat,the e-stat send hotter at the pcm...

That'* right. Now you got it. The fans come on to keep it cool at 160 because the PCM sees 185. :P

My is sort of redundant right now because I have since had the PCM reprogrammed for the 160 stat.

When it is good to use is at the drag strip because with it connected the engine will go into closed loop sooner at a lower temp.

There is no benefit for non-modded car, or mildly modded car. There is also no benefit to run a 160 on his car in it'* current condition.

There is no 'power' to be had in a 160 stat. It'* for fairly heavily modded cars, and still costs fuel mileage.

In addition, the Estat won't work on a 1994 SSEi. He has a different type of coolant sensor. In fact, he has TWO coolant sensors in place of the single Series 2 setup.

I made my own Estat, and made it selectable, but only because I HAVE to run a 160 thermostat now.

Running a 160 at the track isn't necessary if you cool down between runs. Take ice for the supercharger.

You run the risk of making your run too cold with a 160, putting you in fuel enrichment mode, and running too rich. Too rich is almost as bad for power as too lean.

The ONLY reason I HAVE to run a 160 is because I run a 10% underdrive water pump pulley.

If you want a better thermostat, buy one from INTENSE and make it a 180. The opening in the INTENSE thermostats flow 20% more than t ypical thermostats. Then cool down between runs and ice your supercharger.

It flows more. Therefore when you generate more heat in the summer.at times of WOT etc.. it will help cool things quicker.
