203 degree thermostat

Has anyone done this mod?

I have heard good things about putting dieselsite's 203 stat in the truck but, the opinions were from dieselsites people.

I am looking for modest drivablility improvments and am thinking of ditching my edge ez in favor of the 203 stat mod.

Has anyone tried either of these?

If you really think 8 degrees will make a hill o beans of difference have at it. I will stick with my Ford unit that I can pick up at any Ford dealer and not have to wait a week. Bob does sell good products I just don't believe this is a worth while purchase. Of course you will hear all the claims of 2 mpg, my turbo spools up faster, it stopped my blinker fluid from over heating etc..... Placebo!!! it is probably still over heating, isn't it suppose to do that.....?

Put one in a few years ago. Dose a great job keeping the blinker fluid temperature in check. The fan definitely runs more often than before, but that's the only difference I can see. Will be using the stock type next time.

That's what I was thinking. In the summer my fan clutch engages fairly often so I'm pretty sure it's warm enough but would love it in the winter.

I did it. It wasnt worth the postage it costed to ship it to me. Didnt heat up any more than the stocker and it only lasted about a week until it stuck open. Replaced it with a stocker again and all is well.
