Why aren't you planning to use the OEM temperature of 190F?

Will 10F really make a significant difference for you?

I thought our stock ones were 180 degree? Tom offers the 160degree versions

The stock thermostat is 180F for the 3.2 / 3.5 engines, 190F for the 2.7 engines.

* I only checked a couple of years for the 2nd gens. I doubt they changed though.

In manual there is information 195 degree.
Yes,for my Trep it's very important.I live at the city,and sometimes outside was above 100 degree.There is traffic at the road and my Trep using hevy-duty condition.
And don't forget:less temperature-more power,because PCM using that index.
I think so.

Who is Tom?
Does he produce that for 2.7L?
Thanks for answer.

Don't you forget that less temperature-more power is true for air temperature and the opposite for engine temperature! And the PCM will see that the engine isn't (ever) up to designed operating temperature.

We've been down this road before on the board. I'm not convinced...

Oh...Yes.I thinking about this.....You are right,but you don't know,what is working temperature limit saved at the PCM.If normal limit above 180 degree,I guess in this case may be PCM don't accept income temperature index like NORMAL.If 180 degree is a normal for PCM program-it's ok!
Are you agree?

i agree, theoretically the hotter the combustion chamber before detonation the more power you will make, in practice however, the entire engine will tighten up too much from thermal expansion(pistons, rods, crank, valves, etc.) and reduce power.

Wouldn't that only be in the case of serious overheating almost to the point of destruction?

Don't bother Bill. I've come to the realization that you can't "fix" ****** people. Especially over the internet!

Stupid me. I forgot about the melting point of aluminum! Scheech!

Shadowvox - but he was recently under the weather. Yes, you found his thread. He was recently under the weather, give him a day or two to catch up.

You're throwing an awful lot of eBay grade 'things' at your 2.7... Are you really seeing improvements?

i don't think so, if your engine is running at 220, because you are trying to get a more efficient burn, its going to be tighter than an engine running 180 or 160.(i know YOU know this, but obviously other people don't) thats not theory thats fact. i don't believe that a more efficient burn is going to produce enough power to overcome the added friction of a hotter engine, unless the engine tolerances were manipulated to be perfect at a higher temperature.

talk about ****** people, you don't have to melt the metal for it to expand.
