    I cant wait to see the "stock thermostat removal tool" I have played with mine trying to remove the old stat....The cover is sealed pretty good...If it works though...competition is healthy...for this industry..

    Yes, i want to see the tool too. If you had the tool you could go to Autozone and get the proper thermostat and drop it in for $10

    My thaughts exactly...I think what they really are trying to sell is the billet cover...Cause the only way to get the old one out is to smash the cover off...If that is the case I bet ppl that are not carfull will be replacing the whole thermostat housing...

    I guess I'd be replacing the whole damn thing then. For some reason no matter how careful I am something always fucks up......but only when working on this doo cars and my job don't have the same fucked up voodo

    If you have no heat fade then you don't need a cooler thermostat.
