    Is it worth the time to install a 180 degree thermostat on a NA 4.6L with P.I. heads, comp cams, and several mods done to the car?

    It really doesn't take much time at all. Mine runs slightly cooler now.

    i ran a 180* thermostat and loved it, i noticed a big difference but i had a Kenne Bell on mine, its not that hard to do, everyone should, just dont go below 180 or else it will never close

    Thanks for all the advice. I had bought one some time ago but just have not had the chance to install it yet.
