Thermostat

Post by ntymd8r »

I have a 2001 Camaro Z28 and had my predator tune adjusted several times waaay back in, 2003? Runs perfect to this day....over 280,000 miles! Anyway, I’ve had a couple 160 degree thermostats installed over the years and when driving, the temp always has never been at 160....I know the fans were adjusted but I don’t know to what degree. It always warms up to about 180 and averages 185-190....sometimes gets to 200ish when really having spirited runs. I’ve never adjusted my tuner since and don’t know how to check the settings or modify them. Can anyone chime in to shed some direction on what I should do? Just want to keep her cooler...

best advise is to lower all the fan temps by the same amount, usually drop them all about 25*
