Re: Thermostat

Make sure you get the Zerex G-05 if you lose coolant.

Re: Thermostat

The thermostat is only good for bracket racing.. If I didn't go to the drags, I wouldn't worry about it but its good to keep the temps consistent inside the engine. Also you could go lower than 180* but there is no reason unless you live in the Middle East.

Get the Jet tstat I think it was $30 and from what I've heard, it has the best fit.

Re: Thermostat

I think the Thermostat is in the same location as the SRT8, so work on a slight incline and most weight on the rear driver side that way the coolant shifts to the back corner. You will lose about a cup of coolant. If you work on a level surface, you will lose about a quart or so. And not many people like to see coolant spilling on the road.

1.) Can I run anything below 180? As in a 160 or 170 Tstat?

2.) Can 180 Tstats be found in autostores? If so which Autostore?

3.) Will I get codes in the winter?
A spare??? Joe in my honest opinion I think your stock one can become a spare just in case something goes wrong with the 180, then and only then I would have order another 180.

1.) Yes you can but you shouldn't.

2.) Yes, the Valucraft 4128 at Pep Boys or Autozone.

3.) Most likely yes as others have experienced.

Joe, I also remember reading on the lx site that the Motorad 7302-180 is a fail safe t-stat. What I read is that the Motorad t-stats that the part # start with a 7 are fail safe. That's the one I should have ordered when I had the 5.7L .
I don't know if the Jet are fail safe thou...

Let me know if you need help changing it when you get it, just get the 1Gln Ziploc bags to save and not to spill any coolant.
I still have 1 1/2 Gln of the Zerex, you shouldn't have bought any at the dealer.

I hope that helps!
