looking forward to some results from the track anyways I caught this thread yesterday among others and picked up the Jet stat. today from the local speedshop $42 It looked identical to the one I took out including the little check valve (blocker) that Chef. mentioned. Straightforward install and big thanks to MADDOG for the ole madmax gallon bag trick LOL. Just took some misc. pics, a very simple do. 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.

204 is where it sits stock on my 2010. After 180 tstat, sits at 185

I have a DSP and didnt get a CEL. You wont get a CEL even if you change it while stock.

had the oem read 203 degrees Tom. Im hovering around 183-187. I opened the radiator cap this morning before I left and heard it burp..possibly had some air in there. I know back in the day you can open up your radiator cap and watch the flow of fluid during idle after warmup, dont know about these new ones. Is there a way to bleed air? Oil pressure went up from stock approx 6 psi in rush hour As for the oil temps, trans temps I never payed attention to them unless at the track.
