hey,
i just put in a new 180 degree thermostat and a new thermo housing in my friends 90 stang GT. after 5-10 minutes, the ride is smoother but im getting much less power! the temp is reading on the L in the work NORMAL. this should be normal for a low temp thermo. the gas responce is odd. it could possibly be in constant warm up mode, but i put in a 180 degree thermo, not like a 140. high revving, little moving. help fast. i dont like driving a slow car. thx.

well

Only thing I can think of is that maybe you did something while you we're installing it? Maybe made a hole i a vacuum line or something?? Maybe the new thermostat is defective? If the old one still works, try putting that one on and see if it feels like normal. If it does, the new thermo might be bad. Just some ideas. GOOD LUCK! =)

Did you install it correctly? I believe that you have to turn is slightly to get it to align perfectly. or maybe the car just doesn't like it.
