it wont by itself you need to tune it with SCT, it will turn the fans on sooner via the tuner keep the engine cooler.

I think he has a tune ? Yes its a straight swap , the 180 thermostat comes from a 96 contour 2.0 Zetec engine and drops right into the SVT , make sure you change the o-ring as well

Will the 96 Contour swap work for a Zetec?

t-stat

It is a straight swap. I just upgraded to a 180* t-stat and also upgraded to the contour t-stat housing.
