Initial 45 minute afternoon ride showed an average 185 degrees on coolant. Oil pressure went up 7 psi, thats always good. Tomorrow morning in rush hour I will be able to really compare the before/after install..thanks again fellas. Now to see if it equates at the track . One more thing if I need to do it again I would be swapping it out in the following morning or so, I waited 3 hours and the coolant was still warm and some leftover pressure, when I pryed up the old thermostat, I lost another quart of coolant, no biggie.
What was the temperture of your old thermostat ? Was it 195 or 203 ?
