ok I found a thermostat that is rated at 170 degrees. I know every one talks about going to a 180 degree thermostat. question is will the 170 work? I have a diablo so adjusting the fans are not a problem. Besides I can get the 170 for half of what the 180 costs....

You will throw codes and contaminate your oil with moisture and unburned fuel. Aluminum heads need heat for optimum efficiency and power. ie NASCAR engines NEVER run below 200.
