i was reading the post about "ways to mod ur EGT for cheap" and it said that putting in a lower temp thermostat would make the engine cool down faster, so it stay good longer. anybody know the pro's and con's, as well as where it is located and what all is involved?

PROS - If your engine is HEAVILY modified, the thermostat will open sooner allowing better cooling.

CONS - If your engine is NOT heavily modified, the stock ECU will never think the car is up to operating temperature, and you'll stay in a 'warm-up loop' indefinately. Your idle will be dicked up, your engine will never reach operating temperature, and your ECU will hate you. Mine hated me. :)

Your stock thermostat is fine.
