You do realise that the 180 thermostat will actually make you use more fuel and increase engine wear? The ECU will run rich waiting for it to reach the factory operating temp. Also increases sludge build up running colder as well.

Yup, I do. The catch can is for the extra sludge and the warranty is for the rest!! Haha. Since I installed the tstat, my mpgs are better and the engine runs smoother.

Re: guys with 5.7 hemis and 33s

Oh my god are you guys running past the 17 gal tank into the reserve. I am lucky to get 200 miles on a tank and I have the 4.7 running 275/70/17. I get something like 10mpg city and 13 highway. WOW who would have thought the hemi would get better gas milage than a 4.7
