Aftermarket thermostat better??

If an aftermarket thermostat claims to produce more horsepower by opening at a lower temperature and thus operating motor at less heat lode and thus more power....why don´t OEM thermostats come with lower temperature settings? Is the offset less MPG?

Are aftermarket thermostats, ie:lower temp ones worth it?

ThanksĦĦ

A larger tb isn't needed or really beneficial until you are heavily modded. Otherwise not really worth it.

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.
