    Hi Tony,
    If your not doing too many engine mods I'd say leave it. Doesn't hurt for the motor to get to operating temperature sooner rather than later.

    Ther doesen't seem to be enough bypass flow around the stat when closed.
    Need a thermostat cover that will allow bypass flow around the stat to make the stat work correctly.

    A slightly higher water flow for cooling. The standard system can only just keep up with the engine heat as it is.

    If your modding for more power, you'll need to do a lot more than that.

    Just gut the thermostat and never look back. It NEEDS to come out
