180* Tstat

What is everyone else using? the Jet 180 or the Motorad? I haven't been able to find anything on the motorad but there seems to be plenty of Jet 180's out there!

Re: 180* Tstat

How was the fitment? Direct replacement or did you have to trim the gasket?

It definitely keeps it cooler . I have been logging my travels for flyinryan . I can probably check with him to get the exacts but the gauge shows it

As long as the truck is moving there is a huge difference. It hovers around 184-185 deg. If it sits in park, it will heat back up to 218 degrees then the fan kicks on. My Trinity is not controlling the fan while the truck is in park for some reason, but Johan and the crew are working on it.

Re: 180* Tstat

Cool, hopefully they can find the fix, that will greatly improve the powerloss from sitting in line at the dragstrip!
