That's probably a good thing given the way you work that pedal on the right

Re: 180 degree T-stat

It's a good idea on a Hemi. they are very sensitive to knock (the knock sensors wouldn't be put in place in the factory wasn't nervous about breaking ringlands)

on a 4.7 or 3.7, don't bother unless you live in EXTREME heat (south Florida, Arizona, SoCal, etc) or are running some sort of tuning software. Any one of you that are running SCT, B&G, DSP, Superchips....you need one ASAP.

the thermostats can also be modified for lower temps by drilling the housing of the stat.

So what about a HEMI in south Florida, haha

Thanks for the reassurance Ryan, I appreciate it!!

Get one. the Hemi has a more aggressive tune from the factory than the 3.7 or the 4.7, and because of the thin piston ringlands, there is very little tolerance for detonation. You will likely not see a difference in performance overall but you may see the PCM leave more timing because of the cooler temps.

Re: 180 degree T-stat

Don't install it when the engine is hot.. unless you want hot coolant scolding you.
