Racers know that a cooler running engine is a better performing engine. Reducing the temperature at which an engine runs will make more power through better thermal and volumetric efficiency.
This C5 Corvette 1997-2004 160 Degree Thermostat Replacement for LS1 late models replaces the factory 195 unit, allowing coolant to circulate at lower engine temperatures, keeping the engine cooler. It's a no-brainer. This is simply a must have for any caring C5 Corvette owner that wishes to get more out of their Vette.
