Re: 180 degree thermostat rethink
I haven't been trying to say that anyone said they use it to gain performance but a few have said it does. What I have been saying is that a lower rated thermostat really would only be needed in any vehicle other than one that drag races. And that in no sensible way will a thermostat improve the actual performance of your vehicle.
And if your truck's cooling system can't cool the engine while your towing then you pushing the truck beyond what it can do or ,and i agree with what Uber said, that the cooling system needs to be either improved or serviced or you need to get a truck with a higher towing capacity.
Like I said if it ain't broke don't fix it.
