Who makes the Billet Thermostat Housing?

Who makes a Billet Thermostat Housing to replace the OEM stamped steel one? I'm gonna replace my serpentine belt this week and want to change out the OEM thermostat housing while I am doing that. I just don't recall who has them.....

That would be Mr Bob at Dieselsite and he is real proud of them too!!! I just went with a new housing from Powerstrokeshop.com for $18 or so. Make sure you get the right O ring for it, not sure if he is including the O ring now or not!! I wouldn't waste your money on the 203 thermostat though, actually I might waste your money, but not mine, lol!!!

If you're going to be changing your belt you also should get the upper rad hose for a dual alt set up, this way it won't go through the fan belt but over it!! Not one of Ford's greatest designs!!

That's right - I had forgotten about that. I need to do that also.....Thanks! Yeah, I always just stook with the stock thermostat - actually I had seen a few folks switch from the 203 back to stock.......
