If one thermostat is good, then 2 has to be twice as good!

Edit: actually, there are people that run 2 thermostats, but one of them is to bypass the heater core, not like he has it.

2 thermostats = DOUBLE THE [email protected]

Also, Inline fuel pumps can explode like grenades, a boost controler can lower the boost below what the wastegate is rated at, and 4" charge pipes are perfect for a 1.8L engine.

Hyper sure is an innovator, I wish I had his amazing knowledge of engineering lots of money to pour into pointless projects

Perhaps someone more artistic could draw up a diagram with my suggestion.

I just might have to do that, plus some other stuff that would be right down Hyper's alley

Hyper must be a troll bot. He can't be real.

Brain was able to illustrate exactly what I was thinking. Some sort of homo mind link.

Obviously Heffer is a moron, but in light of the recently-ish deiscovered difference in the 01+ head gasket, I have actually been thinking about running 2 t-stats figuring that the one in the hotter area will do the primart work and the second one will only open when *ish gets really hot. See, I now suspect that with the 01+ HG and a re-route, the front of the head has the potential of getting too hot because of low-flow volume, so by adding a t-stat to the original location and plumbing it into the upper rad hose, all will be OK. My worry is that since the temp gauge is on the re-route spacer, it won't tell me if the front of the engine is running hot :(

At least I feel better in my theory over what Fagstick is doing.
