Gear temp. 74C – 89C

Engine radiator temp. 81C – 97C
Engine Oil temp. 78C – 95C
Gear temp. 65C – 81C

One more good news Hasan. No need to order it there is a local shop that sells it
Hi Faisal
Did it throw any codes and did it void the warranty?

Which is better mishimoto or jet, and does it need any tuning for the pcm to work properly?

I installed the Jet in my 2012 Altitude and have seen results in temp. If you install it yourself which only takes
about 5 minutes make sure not to open any if the radiator fill or caps as this will rehearse more fluid. Be sure to use Only Mopar provided antifreeze.

Well many members here have installed the Jet-stat and few had some problems and one of them changed to Mishimoto and never had a problem with it .
This is why I need a comparison between the two stats .

Re: WK2 GC - Reducing Hemi Engine temp

I'll say it again, makes no difference. You're wasting both time and money installing a low temp thermostat. I've towed 6k in 115F ambient temp up the sierras and never saw my water temp rise above the normal temp range. Oil temp and trans temp rose, but all within tolerances. The motor was designed to run at these temperatures and to tow with OE equipment. (i have a 4x4 v8 which comes standard with upgraded cooling parts) Unless you're doing something more extreme than this, then save the headache of doing all this.

Dropping engine temp too far can cause failing emissions tests in states which check this stuff.

Wouldn't you be better off just cooling the intake charge?

Well in my daily driving the average speed is 100m/h and once a week I do some offroading on the sand dunes so it gets really hot today for example after racing someone in a new Nissan maxima I did 220k/h so after I slowed down the oil temperature was 235F . so isn't this extreme enough to get a stat ?

You would be better off increasing the cooling capacity, bigger oil cooler, bigger or better radiator. The oil needs to be hot enough to boil off condensation so you can't go to low.

By the way the 5.7 hemi doesn't come with an oil cooler especially our wk2s so the only option as you say is to get an aftermarket oil cooling kit ?! :-!
