Reading this thread makes me want one more and more....

Perhaps I'll have to take a visit back to Michigan to pick it up too and have it tuned.

Question Reduced Operating Temp?

Chris,
I'm curious what your thoughts are about reducing the operating temperature of the LS2 with a thermistat swap. Mine runs at about 210 degrees (on the dash gauge). That seems pretty damn toasty to me. I assume everyone else's SS runs about the same.

Would reducing the operating temperature a bit (say down to 180 degrees) provide any gains? Have you considered this with the tune you are currently working on?

Oddly enough, (at least in my truck) while the ECT gauge reads 210 its actually at 180-195 (ECT reading from my Tech 2) which is right where LS2's like to run. I'm leaving the stat alone for now as it seems to be in prime territory

Ahh.. that's what I figured might be happening... dash guages strike again! I guess they are notoriously inaccurate. Thanks for the info!
