Also is a 160 thermastat to low for the truck? thanks :confused:

 

Yeah in Ohio, the 160 would be to low I would think. especially winters?!? I also read somewhere that it reduced mileage by acouple MPG...

 

I have one in Iowa and I doubt it'll make much of a diff. in the winters. It'll run hotter than the * of your thermostat cause it only starts to open at 160*. Unlike the stock one which is what? 185*? Anyway, the thermostat starts to open at 160 and is fully opened by around 180-185 which is where your degrees should stick. If it was stock it starts opening at 185 and is fully opened by around... 200+. At least that's how I understood it.

Does it seem to run better? How's it feel?

around 3000 it seems to come on ,I should have done a dyno run first ,before the install.shifting is crisp .The 1.-2 is a little hard for round town driving .I will have to do something about that
