The thermostats are easy guys.

I've er uh.. got experience here.

One is a standard t stat and the other is the fail safe t stat.

Both look like stants.

The INTENSE Tstat is not a Stant. It'* made by a different company. I don't recall, but it'* a 4-letter brand name stamped on the side.

It'* the diameter for the amount of flow that'* the primary difference. Nearly 10% larger when open.

It the same one that ZZPerformance sells. I use to run the same t-stat with a only 2 holes in it but now I upgraded! No problem keeping it right at 160 now.

I'm waiting for the next 90-100 day to see if the Estat will be necessary. I'll do it anyway (this weekend), but it will be switchable for only when I need it.

I assume the three bar top structure is the intense?

3-bar structure is the INTENSE. It'* hard to tell from my pic the opening diameter difference, but this one is easier:



Rough measurements on my screen show the larger thermostat to be a 16.7 percent increase in diameter. That'* better than a 30% increase in area (flow) assuming both thermostats open the same distance.

The car was very confused this morning. Scans were with 92 pump gas, no water injection, 60 ambient temps. First couple runs I got 10-15 of KR at mid-throttle, and 0 of KR at WOT. Very odd. Next two runs started changing to 7 of KR at mid, 10 of KR at WOT, and the last run was 5 at mid (about 7psi) and 11 at WOT. I don't think these numbers really mean anything at this point. My PCM needs some adjustment time.

Thermostat change gave me consistent 175 temps after warmup in 60 ambient air temps on the way to work. It should stay similar, maybe 185 in 100 ambient.

You do have an extra supercharger waiting just in case right?

Not any more. It'* on driverjohn'* car.

I'm pretty adept at picking up used M62'* off eBay for $100. There'* a trick to it, and I can port, polish, and rebuild in about a week'* time. I do have an OEM Gen3 sitting on the other car, too.

Your PCM is VERY confused, if there was a problem it would pull the same KR at the same Throttle postion...heheheh she needs a few more runs lol
