172 T-Stat?

Can i pick one of these at my dealer or would a local autoparts store have one? Also my truck is brand new i shouldnt have to get a new gasket right? Does the T-stat make the truck run better or is it just strickly cooler? I know usally cooler means it runs better but i was just wanting some feedback.

Thanks,
Jake

Get one from Gary @ X-metal Engineering.

The gasket should be fine.A cooler truck makes more power and with any added mods it is a good idea to do.Hell for $28.95 or so it is a small investment.

Yes, Boomer or Roe.
No, you don't have to get a new gasket, but they are only 10 bucks I think. Can't hurt to replace.

Will it running cooler it will help re: detonation. So on a N/a its not a huge gain, but when you add a stage 2 flash or Forced induction its really cheap insurance

we have them on stock, the stock stat doenst get the water flowing soon enough, enough at high way speeds. we also now have a bolt in HI-FLOW lectric pusher fan kit, with a thermostatic controller, that controls the fan operation when you choose your desired operating temp range as well as you can configure it to come on when the AC is turned on, so that the AC can really start to cool down, and we all know that the stock AC system in these trucks leaves a lot to be desired. thats due to the stock cooling fan doenst cycle soon enough or fast enough for the AC, especially when sitting in traffic.
the t-stats are 28.95, and the pusher fan kit w.controller is $199.
