Re: 180 Thermostat for 3.7L V6

Find a 180* in a certain SIZE. Not application. Tstat is a Tstat.

Re: 180 Thermostat for 3.7L V6

So what are the benefits of running a 180* tstat in the 3.7?

Re: 180 Thermostat for 3.7L V6

I have a theory thaat the 3.7 tstat is the same or similar to the 4.7. they share a few items from thr 4.7 cooling system...so the tstat may be one. The easiest thing to do for a 3.7 owner is to go to an auto parts store and ask for a tstat for the 3.7 and the 4.7 and compare them...

use your brains guys

Re: 180 Thermostat for 3.7L V6

I may just make a stop at autozone and try that. If its the same size it might just work...

Re: 180 Thermostat for 3.7L V6

Has anyone been able to confirm if there is indeed a 180 TStat for the 3.7?

Re: 180 Thermostat for 3.7L V6

Not that I know of, but like scott said you would just have to test fit one and see if it would fit as there is NOT on that specifically says "fits 3.7L"Doesnt the hypertech control that anyways?

Yeah that's what I figured, just thought I would check to see if anyone else had any luck.

Yes, the Hypertech programmer will adjust the fan settings.

I just need to find out what the optimal decrease in temp should be set to? I believe the stock T Stat is 195 degrees(but not positive), so was planning on running it at 180 - 185.

Re: 180 Thermostat for 3.7L V6

Well the idea behind it is the cooler the better, but some have said that doing that won't let the engine reach optimal operating temp and can hurt the engine.

Who knows, I'm no mechanic. Others seem to be using them with no problem

It's fine. 180 stat will still exceed 180 at low speeds, etc.
