Like the Flowkooler 195 stat

Did some hot weather driving at 70-75 MPH.  The engine temp comes up to 1 line before half with the “sensitized” temp sender and factory gauge and
very stable using the Flowkooler thermostat from Applied. Before,  high load/high speed would cause temp creep upwards. Did not hear fan clutch on
highway but did work exactly as needed when hitting exit ramp after high speed. Then staying engaged for a few blocks in atop and go before relaxing.
I feel that this high flow stat is throttling flow to keep it right at 195 during light demand conditions while still having more flow to open up in
severe conditions. This greater coolant flow through radiator gives a better hot air “signal” to the fan clutch so it works better too.  Also
warmup and heater were excellent in cold weather.  Highly recommend this thermostat.
