Default 180 degree thermostat???

What exactly is there to gain from removing the stock thermostat and putting a 180 degree one in??

Lol, take it from me, this has been brought up several times and disscussing the benifits are not worth the arguements that will follow. I suggest you research it and perhaps contact performance engine builders to hear it straight from the horses mouth.

I have been told that the Magnum engines respond well with the 180 t-stat but depending on modifications.
