    I bought a Mr Gasket bypass thermostat and removed the little bypass hose and capped connections. 180 stat and runs dead on setpoint and creeps up to 190 with the AC and 90+ degree day. Takes a few more minutes to warm up since it always flows at least a little bit until it opens up. Stock 4 row radiator and 455.

    we always would drill a hole in the thermostat to allow water to pass thru, for the same reason. But I don’t quite understand how it would help cool any better.
