if you are not running n2o or forced induction is it worth it to get a 160 degree thermostat. Wont you lose hp if your engine runs too cool, thats what i was told anyway. thanks

its been my understanding that you can have a bit more timing with the lower engine temps. the high temps that todays engins run is mainly for emissions reasons.
