    Who's running this setup or this exact kit? Any cons to it? anything else you need besides whats in the kit? I was thinking out getting this to help get my temps up for better combustion and less carbon buildup. Right now my average temp when running WOT is 110 and idling is around 130-145. Open...

    Good evening, any reason why I should not run a thermostat on a 460 ford with twin turbo? Everywhere I try to buy one they do not recommend it for tt and blowers. Why and what's the alternative? Thanks much.. jack

    Does anyone have or know where I can get a BBF dual (two THREADED ports) thermostat housing? Everywhere I have looked only has one outlet and it is set up for a rubber hose application. Any info would be much appreciated.

    How risky is it to use a thermostat in a jet boat? Has anyone had it stick from sand causing the engine to overheat? I was looking at a stainless steel Rex but they are out of stock.
