I have a dew thermostat related questions. Im goin to replace the hoses on my truck and im goin to go ahead and do the thermostat. Im ordering it from summit racing so does the brand really matter? I was goin to go with jet or hypertech. Also with the 180 temp thermostat is it goin to make a difference?

Just watch how much you spend on it . You can get the same thing from any parts store . Don't spend no more than $10.00 for a new stat and gasket . You may want to consider replacing the radiator cap also . That is one of the most overlooked items that should be replaced on a routine basis .
Going from a 195 to a 180 T-stat may drop your fuel economy by 1-2mpg once the engine is warmed up. Sure, you get a little more power. But for the price of fuel going up, other mod's may be worth the effort.
