    mate, they just open 10deg's lower down, and hence should keep it 10deg C cooler .... works in principle, but how useful that is when your talking about 80deg + anyways - who knows ??

    I've got one and TBH can't really notice much difference.

    I thought I had a duff one at first so got another one sent through from Courtenays.

    makes sense I suppose. That said they are not expensive - so perhaps get one mate and see what difference it makes.

    i don't see the point of these TBH.

    Why would you want your car to run 10degC cooler? If your car is overheating then surely that points to something being wrong with your cooling system.

    also typical courtenay will probably charge you £50 for something you can probably get from your local vaux dealer for a fiver....

    Sceptic ah ??? The tuned engine will inherantly run hotter, trade off of pushing up the engine towards its limits. Opening the cooling stat 10deg lower will enable the engine to begin cooling itself 10deg earlier than it would normally
