Thermostat
 
Ok I know in the package deal I got, a 180 tstat is included but I want a spare.

So my questions are:

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?

The auto parts store that I used to work at ever carried 180 stats but we could order them.

I don't think you should run under 180 degrees. It's not normal operating temp.

Search!

Oh right. :p

You can, but you risk codes.
180 you can get at Autozone, Advance Auto, Pep Boys, et al.
SAA.

whats the gain/difference of going lower temp?

Not Jet, but Motorad. They are made by the same company but the Jet is like the Lexus of Toyota, the Acura of Honda, the Cadillac of GM, the Infiniti of Nissan. You get the idea. ;) Oh, and the Jeep of Chrysler.

I think AutoZone sells Valucraft which Im pretty sure is a MotoRad!

A colder engine is a happier engine. It performs better and supposedly it's better for the engine.
