Hey all...

Many have told me that if I use a lower degree thermostat, the computer will not work properly... and i would need to replace the chip with a custom one, is this true?

97 3.8, with a 197 degree thermo (autozone told me that is the standard degree for my tbird)

Thanks in advance,
~Doug

Depending on how low you went it might not go into closed loop operation. Also unless the PCM was reprogrammed to have the fans come on at a lower speed it would still get hot like stock.
