i wanna know why you can run 160* thermostat in a eft 5.0 i run one with my alumium headed motor. Only difference in a 160* and a 180* is the thermostat opens sooner. But why cant you run one? thats what i wanna know. Im sure you can run anything you want. Id rather have a 160* in mine so it opens sooner then a 180* with a set of aluminum head so i dont melt them or blow them woulnt you? cause from what i remember in school water boils at 212* am i right? so woulnt it be smarter to run a 160* then a 180* cause 180* seems like its hotter then 160* to me. just cause you put a 160* thermostat in your car dont mean the water temp wont reach 180* or 195* etc it just opens it sooner thats all. So you stick with your 180*s, 190*s or whatever ill stick with my 160* on those hot summer days so i dont warp my aluminum head from overheating them. have a nice day
