x2 on the HOAT coolant.
I've had my Jet 180º T-Stat for over a year, Run it all year round in Northern Alberta where it can hit -35º to -40º in the Winter.
Never an issue and my truck has never throw a code since I bought it May 08/10'.
I've never had a rich reading, if anything she runs a little on the lean side
I run a 93 tune and on 94 oct gas all year round too and I get great fuel economy and max HP.
My coolant temps are consistantly 183º-185º, oil temps 10º below that.
and my Trans temp hovers around 130º with normal city driving- even after installing a 3000 stall Torque converter. peaks at around 150º racing it.
On my Diabo Trinity there are three fan settings:
Cooling Fans AC Off:
High MPH HS Fan ON : 222.79º default value*
Low MPH HS Fan ON : 222.79º default value
Cooling Fans AC On:
HS Fan ON : 222.79º default value
*based on a stock 203º T-Stat
I changed All settings to 180º back in April, start of race season and left it there all Summer.
... but will adjust the fan settings back up to 200º+ for the Winter.
Heater still puts out plenty for me on the coldest days, but it is a smaller regular cab and I have heated seats
I run both the electric and mech fan for max cooling, it's not a significant enough drag to justify removing it IMHO.
