Injected's KOOL Power Thermostat

What improvement has this offered anyone who is using it? Is it worth the $49.95?

I can say that here in south texas where we spend most days with nasty heat that this thing made a huge difference in the initial get up and go from like stop and such. But again I run it with their tuner.

By lowering the thermostat opening temps it makes the engine run cooler then adding a tune to turn on the fans sooner you lower the water temps even more

This helps safety and performance , with lower coolant temps you get lower cylinder temps which mean less chance on spark knock , less fuel used

You can buy the 180 thermostat at your local parts store as well , Parts geek has them

I use an iOS application - FuzzyCar - with my PLX Kiwi Wifi, and as much as I could see is that at temperatures above 24C (75 F), on highway, the coolant temperature is usually between 195-205 F. In trafic, this temp might go higher in the same conditions. But, as a rule of thumb, the 195 F is the temperature this engine operates - verry fast it gets there. And I think the 195 is the temp limit for the stock thermostat.

I maybe wrong but I believe stock thermostat settings are closer to 210-220

Correct with the stock thermostat 192-196 (from my testing) there is no reason to turn the fans on sooner , when you add a 180 you can then bring the temps down a little more

Fan turn on is 210

I have seen the Focus at cruise hit 230+ deg which is normal

Yeah I read on here in a few different threads that the gauge in the cluster is more or less a comfort thing and the actual temps fluctuate higher than 190.

+1. Common in a LOT of cars. The gauge itself won't fluctuate because drivers won't be aware that temperatures in their cars fluctuate. So it'll just go up to the pre-programmed position if it's within the operating range; then creep up if it exceeds that. That's why you'll hear people talk about the needle 'shooting up' when their car overheats!
