Also helps to prevent sticking tstat problems if they ever occur.
yeah i guess i can try it. It'll be hard to tell cuz the amount of time I let my truck warmup lol, thank god for heated seats.

Ill prolly be doing this mod some time this week. Is it a good idea to change out all the antifreeze at this point too?
