Thermostat

Mine sucks. Going down hill now that summer is gone, I can hit 183*. What are aftermarket options? Also, what readings are you getting with new Ford?

I would love a stright 200* thermo....

Just the standard 192*-219* Tstat is available. Just go with a stocker. In the summer with my BPD and oil tstat my oil is usually around the low 200's. In the winter it is around 190.

Ok, I will pick one up today. I have a feeling its going to be a PSD day. Oil, fuel, and air filter on a friends truck and hopefully this.

Guess I will use up that little bit of ELC I have in the open jug....

Nope. There are quite a few PSDs around these parts. Not everyone gets free oil like you.

Well me too for the 7.3

I think I may tackle the super difficult task of the "high idle" mod this morning. We all know that installing a toggle switch is tough. Haha
