195 is stock..

180 is a little better, but w/o a chip/tune it won't really run properly.. w/ just a 180tstat in, the temp guage will actually read a bit higher even though the fan is 'supposed' to come on sooner..

really.. just changing the tstat won't do anything w/o a tune dude

after you get an SCT chip if you plan on getting one..Run a one heat range cooler plug...I use Autolite 103 and the Lightning Thermostat. It is a 180* and seems to be much better than the Robert Shaw tstat I got from Discount Auto.
