With the ac on the fan runs all the time, I reset all mine yesterday to 183*. my dash indicates I'm running a half a mark lower than setting them at 186*. or two full marks marks below straight up.As long as the engine is above 160* where it goes from open loop to closed loop, you are ok. My vette had a hypertech 172* stat and I ran at 175* without issues.Ive run back to back to back runs at the dragstrip with nary a sign of heat soak.The predator will datalog but there is nowhere nearby where I can run wot and not risk a ticket.With school out them rugrats are everywhere, even at the dragstrip running around on their bicycles,Sunday I almost hit several just getting into line to race. I'm not anti children, I have three, plus six grand, and four great.

I see you are running with much lower fan temp. settings than most people. I was wondering why most are choosing to run in the 190's ? I had previously made my settings the same as OhmaRumble illustrated above, that is the same as I have read in several other threads so I went with it. When I changed my fan settings for the new 180 degree thermostat I noticed that my original stock fan settings were for around 5 degrees higher than the stock thermostat rating or 208.39 degrees.

So I was wondering why not set the high fan setting for 5 degrees higher than the new thermostat at 185? It seems you have done this without any ill effect. Is there any reason anyone knows of that we shouldn't set our fan setting this low? I'm just wondering as it seems logical to me that it would help the car to run cooler and thus hopefully better.
