Motorad 180 Tstat And Results!
Ok so I installed my motorad 180 Tstat, took about 10-15 minutes, took longer to remove my CAI and not scratch it!
Refilled the coolant that was lost, started the car and let it idle and get the air out, got it to the right level and drove around to see the results. While moving the coolant temp goes down to 185-190 and the SRT8 feels like an animal at that coolant temp, I was pleasantly suprised. While idleing it can go up to normal temps 212-217 but as soon as you move it drops drastically and the car has added pep to it.
OK so Im thinking to myself hmmm the butt dyno says its faster but I need proof!!! Ahhhh the Dashhawk 0-60 timer, my best 0-60 was 4.30 with the Dashhawk. So I ran a 0-60 run with the coolant temp at 185-190 and my 0-60 went from 4.30 to 4.03. Need I say more? Get this simple mod, its worth every penny.
