Do you have your temp up on your display always? Or do you just scan through it once in a while. I ask because i see you have a 1ss which doesnt have the gauge cluster

You realize these cars run best at 200+ degrees right? Hard to believe but true...

I left the thermostat alone but the tune has made the fan come on sooner.

There really is no point in having a 160 degree thermostat when the engine makes its best numbers at 210 degrees.

While I would agree for the most part on an NA car, I wholeheartedly disagree on a boosted car. My SC car makes more power more consistently with the 160 T-stat....
