We have all seen the 180 thermostats. They seem to be good for a little power gain. I have been told around 3hp. It is a cheap mod for the gain. I have a 04svtf this mod will turn on you cel. I have a scanner to turn off the light so no problem for me. I plan on getting Tom to tune my car when I finish some other mods, but until then I will use my scan tool. Truthfully, I have lost around 2mpg due to the vehicle staying in closed loop. There are no other problems so far. I did notice a small power gain from the mod. I did not have to remove the whole water temp block assembly. Anyone need help just ask. Laters
