    I see you're in my part of the world so usually anytime after 10am is fine.

    That sounds good to me JOEL. I appreciate your time & I won't keep you long. It's just nice to talk to the maker directly before ordering. I will give you a call next week bud. ;-)

    The driver's side head is the same casting as the passenger side head. So why isn't there an issue on the passenger side? Funny, that...

    Sorry that I haven't called you yet Joel or ordered my thermostat from you. It's finals week & not only do I have limited free time, I have no extra money at the moment. I haven't forgotten about this very cool & beneficial mod though. Hopefully I will be ordering mine as soon as things get back to normal for me over here. I appreciate you helping us with this cool & very necessary custom product... ! :beer:

    because there is no way for the coolant to drain back and the hot fluid accumulates in drivers side rear were as the pass side has a fitting on the back that allows the coolant to circulate passed.:thumbsup:

    thanks joel for a great thermostat, did mine today. removed drilled stock thermostat mod, installed your 170 thermostat. results far surpass my expectations. hands down superior to drilled stock thermostat mod.
    thanks :beer:

    just seen this post, not sure why i havent seen it yet. id like to get one. question tho...

    i have the LDC cooling mod w/aftermarket radiator running just plain ole 50/50.... checked out your site and you talk about Water Wetter, i am not familiar with it at all, reading that .pdf hurt my brain...
    What is a proper, safe mixture of coolant, h2o, and water wetter with my cooling setup, and your t-stat?

    It's just a matter of freeze protection. You want to run a ratio that is good to about 5-10* below the coldest temp you expect the vehicle to see, also add about 1 and a half bottles of Water Wetter to the system. In Indiana I'd probably go with a 30-35% antifreeze concentration at minimum.

    Yeah 110 with the A/C on is asking a lot of the underpowered stock fan, but I'm glad the stat is working well for you otherwise!

    Me too. I have told Joel many times that I'm a bout to get one but I still haven't. School just started (no extra time) & I'm broke.

    This mod is a very good unit to have... ! A cooler running 03/04 COBRA is a happy one. ;-)
