Re: What is the best Thermostat temp?

<< The reason that many cars run hotter with out any thermostat is that the
 flow goes from a 1 inch hole(with the thermostat) to a 4 inch hole(without
 the thermostat).  Water pressure from the pump goes down and the flow is
 slowed making it run hotter.  Many American cars have this problem since the
 thermostat is right after the pump.  Reread your fluid dynamics books from
 College. >>
Hmm- I like Daves explanation better. Thanks, thats always bothered me.
