My 07' stays at 210 litterally from the minute I start it up, so I doubt it has a 180.

For an N/A application.....Should I bother? I remember reading that the stat changed between 06 and 07 models. Does anyone make a 180 stat?
Give it a few, Lingenfelter is developing one now.......160 that is!

The 2007 has a 196º factory t'stat. They use fan modulation to keep temps above t'stat set temp so the water pump does not get loaded down.

Remember, you always want the t'stat opening to happen at a lower temp than the actual engine temp, to unload the restrictive effect on the pump and the resulting horsepower loss of driving a high static pump head.

Sure you can, it will run cooler at speed and just as warm at idle or at traffic lights, unless it's cold out.

Yep,

All you have to do is re-use your factory o-ring gasket. Mine has been this way for around 9k now.

I would not take anything from SLP if they were giving it away...

Well, maybe I would...
