2000 7.3 runs colder than normal after 6637 mod

This has probably been addressed before, but i have a question. I recently did the foil delete and the 6637 mod on my 2000 F250 7.3 and now my temp gauge on the dash..the factory one...reads barley above cold. any ideas? is this normal? I havent installed any gauges yet due to the fact that they are freakin outrages, i know they are important but on a budget, so all im seeing is the factory installed coolant temp. any help would be appreciated
thanks

Was it like that before the mod? sounds more like a thermostat problem not intake related

ya the intake and the foil delete shouldnt effect the running temps of the truck, maybe your thermostat is stuck open? or maybe you temp sensor is going out? the factory guages are more/less dummy lights..

You can get a set of Glowshift gauges (like Pyro, tranny and boost) with the matching pod for your truck for $200 shipped... just throwin it out there. That's what I have on my truck and they work great.
