Actaully when you get down to it all t-stats are the same ( unless its some odd ball vehicle). About running rich and low mpg, that is an incorrect statement. It is race proven the lower the temp the better it performs. Look at the 145 to 165 t-stats that say RACE only. Thats what you might be mistaken with. Now on any vehicle with a computer the lowest you want to go, ( unless you live in a climate that doesn't get below 75 degrees) is 180 degree. If you go below that, in the winter your vehicle will not get to operating temps and will throw codes left anf right. So in conclusion 180 t-stat is perfect, I run one in my 02 ram. Oh yeah 30$ is way to damn much...... Summit racing 14$ bro. Yall have a good one.
