Re: How To : Install A JET 180 TStat

alright Frankie I will be doing this shortly...give me some insight as to why you changed the Temp due to a CMR? I will be getting my DS predator, Tstat and bwoody soon...and then I will send my stock file for a CMR. Should I install the TStat before I remove the stock tune onto the predator? I am new to this whole tuning game so any and all help is greatly appreciated. And did you just poor the coolant back in? I just read another thread showing some bleeding to get the air out...

Re: How To : Install A JET 180 TStat

You can change the tstat at any time before or after, it won't affect the tune.

Correct.. The t-stat doesn't have to be tuned or anything like that

But, before I got a cmr tune, i would definitely upgrade the tstat just to be safe. Its 34 bucks or less and can be changed in 15 minutes.

Can you explain? Why is it required/better for a CMR tune?

Re: How To : Install A JET 180 TStat

Its just good to have, as you are beating on your engine, you want it to run cooler. Changing the T-stat will do just that.

CMR will change timing and engine parameters to make it perform better, with the added power, your engine will want to run hotter. Changing the t-stat will tell the engine to start running coolant sooner at a lower temp.

Also, in your climate, changing it will probably have 0 effects on how long it takes for your motor to get up to heat. Even around here it isnt that bad

Re: How To : Install A JET 180 TStat

So has anyone had any issues directly related to the tstat? Like emissions issues or o2 sensors failing? I know that to void warranty they would need to pinpoint that the tstat is the reason for the problems, but is the tstat enough to void? Also, is it worse to run a 180 tstat in really hot weather or really cool? I do go to Vegas in the summer and I don't want to fawk anything up ( it's a 300+ mile drive that is hilly and reaches 115 degrees outside and sometimes 120 ). Thanks in advance

Re: How To : Install A JET 180 TStat

Rather than your engine running around 210 Its running around 185-190 at the highest with the 180*. Cooler engine has its pros and cons. If your tuning it, it'll run hotter... cooler is better... TO A POINT. Having it too cool will burn more fuel and foul up emissions.

When towing helps the engine stay cool when hauling a heavy load.... or climbing a mountain in the desert when its 120 out.

The 180* in my 4.7L made it run so much better its not funny.
