That being said, would there be any issue with a 190deg t-stat? somewhere in between the 180-203 options. Again, I don't know if there would be any reason on an '11 style truck. A lot of guys SWEAR buy their 180 stats for better performance and better fuel economy...
I too would like to know if there is a 190 or 192 degree thermostat that will fit in a 2013-2014 5.7 hemi that will still make the computer system act correctly as the engineers designed it to.
