So I got myself a AFE intake, superchips programmer on the way, Ported throttle body on the way, and stainless steel magnaflow exhaust on the way as well... buuuut..

I have read a few people have been putting on 180* thermostats on... with said above performance mods would it be wise to toss a 180* one on it... or would it be fine without?

Also why would you want to do that, aside from lowering engine coolant temps.

Also got projector headlamp housings + low and fog HID kits, hitch, and will be going engine tune up soon for 60k maintenance.

Re: Goodies
Definitely let me know how the AFE,superchips, tb, a exhaust turn out for you perfomance wise. We are going to need lots of pictures and videos of before and after.

The reason I ask is because I have a magnaflow exhaust, and I'm currently looking for an intake and in the next month am getting a ported and polished throttle body. Can't wait to see what it's like, best of luck my man.

Re: Goodies
The cooler t-stat obviously lets the coolant circulate sooner, and keep the engine cooler, but the real advantage of this is that it also keeps the intake temp cooler which makes the intake air denser, thus making more power..It might not be a huge difference, but it does make more power...

Re: Goodies
HAH, I have an AFE intake and Magnaflow catback sitting in my basement waiting to be installed too!! Going to wait on the programmer, but will probably do the t-stat change soon with summer coming.

Got to be careful with what I do - don't want to void my 100K b2b warranty.

Re: Goodies
Wow... so where you all pick up the 180* for your 4.7L's ? Can't seem to find one that is for 4.7.... just the 5.7L.
