Pros: Lowers coolant temperature in 95% of driving conditions.
Cons: None if you're putting on a Roe Supercharger at the same time.

Coolant temperature stays lower than stock under all conditions except running slow (25 MPH in a plat) or when the air temperature exceeds 80 degrees, and then it only goes up to stock temperature levels with the Roe Supercharger. The coolant temperature will quickly go down to close to 180 degrees by just going faster, but beware of radar if you try this to lower your temp. (100 MPH for less than a mile in 5th or 6th gear does the trick.)

Pros: Low cost, can reduce coolant temperature during high speed driving
Cons: only benificial when you have good airflow to radiator such as high speed driving

Can only help if you have sufficient airflow through the radiator. Low speed, around town, or in traffic temperatures will remain high.

Pros: increased perf and milage
Cons: none

Factory requires higher engine temps for emmissions, not performance. Great product to use. Adds 5hp min.
