180 Thermostat for 3.7L V6
 
Im new to this forum and have researched in earlier threads about this. I recently purchased a JET performance module and it has increases mpg and throttle response greatly! They recomend using a 180 degree thermostat. Any ideas on where to find one? I have seen on other forums that people have found them for the 3.7L.

Any help would be great!

You do realize that running a colder temperature with increase engine wear, oil sludging, and fuel consumption if the ECU is not reprogrammed to not run rich while waiting for it to reach operation temperature?

Well, I've heard mixed ideas. Jet recomends using one with the chip. And theoretically, would cooler engine run better?

i dont believe they make a 180tstat for the 3.7, i know in the past we've searched and searched but could not find one...

there are a few companies that do tunes for the 3.7 but you have to get a spare pcm and tune and it is super $$$

JET makes a chip for all dodge/chrysler/jeep vehicles. It go in between your ecu plug and your ecu. helps a lot with low end torque and about +1 mpg.

I'll try and find that poster of who had a 180 deg thermo. and try to upload a pic of the one i have now

I can't seem to find the original post where someone posted about their mods to their own 3.7L and listed a 180 thermo. But It was on JG so lets hope they see this!

It could have been an older model though. I know they make a 180 for the 4.0
