What brand did you order? Mr. Gaskets are supposed to be very good at opening fully and staying open at their advertised 180* temp.

Most parts store stats have a range listed for them. A typical 180* stat is usually listed as 180*-195*. They typically start opening at 180* and are fully open by 195* Mine runs dead on at 195* fully warmed up, which is just about right for a fuelie 5.0 The factory stat is listed as a 190*, but that is only the opening temp, they usually are not fully open until 205* at least.

IMHO, a carbed car would benefit more from a true 180* stat like the Mr. Gasket, because a fuelie needs to hit 172* to go into closed loop, and 180* dead on is a little too close to that for me.
