    Does yours run very hot then? I doubt it.

    How much is cheap as courtney over charge for this standard GM group part.

    I know what it's fitted to as standard :P

    Spill the beans then m8.

    I think the idea is that it keeps the engine running cooler, so pro-longing the life of the turbo, etc etc - but someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Though Courtenays only charged about £30 or £40 for these anyway, but never really thought I'd need one, but if Vauxhall do the same part cheaper it may be worth getting one just as a preventative measure.

    I'm sure they fit these to the Mk4 Sri turbo in Aus.

    Hmmm, might ring tomorrow and check part #'s
    Because standstill traffic on a day thats 45 deg in the shade, well, i reckon a cooler thermostat MIGHT help a little!

    Talk about bribery

    It's from an Aussie Cally turbo with A/C.

    If you get the part no you can order from vxl about £14.
