Curious as to why you want a cooler one?

IMO 140 is to low,,BUT seeing the Riva 160s are not opening till 180,that may be the one you need to find to get your temps around 160..
+1..with being hard pressed to find one..

Hydrotoys has given me a link to the chevy remote kit. I may buy this kit as it will work great with my rapidaccellerations reducer and dynotune temp gauge?

I have an IR temp gauge pointed at mine and have never seen more than 162. Where is the evidence of 180?
I did drill out my washer a tad per a post from ironhead and vspec1.

Bobo is one of the forum members that has seen 187 and I will look to see the other that saw thesame and almost at 200.
I have never thought to check the riva kit until now and I thinkit is a good Idea to inspect anyway.
I think maybe theses guys are having maybe some rust in there stats as they still will rust and may stick or act slowly.

Austin, Talk to James(Fizzle) i think his housing screws and unscrews apart so you can replace the thermo...IF im not mistaking it takes a regular automotive thermo too...This may be the route you might want to go..that way you can switch thermos easily and cheaply..

Before you replace it take some temp readings and then drill out your washer a tad per that post and then re test bro. This I didn't do. The riva unit screws apart to I believe.
