Yes, it's pretty easy.
The only thing I'll add is to use a large zip lock bag to catch the coolant after loosening the bolts or not.
Well, the Mayans and other Soothsayers were right, the end has begun.
Common sense is so rare it should be considered a superpower

The 170 threw codes in early morning dur9ing the inter. The 180 doesn't, and I found little performance difference.
I gained >.5 mpg with the change

Just a grocery getter!
you do not have to. The car will run cooler at higher speeds only.
Around town the fans will not work until the factory settings, so the change will be very small.
All you need is a Predator.

does anyone havea model for the 180 stat? can i buy it advance auto?

I would go with the Jet one. I have the autozone one, and it isn;t very accurate-opens at 176, so I get codes constantly. I am awaiting a Jet to replace so no codes. If it opens too soon, too often you get the codes. No biggie-I can clear with Superchips, but just makes the heart skip a beat when the engine light goes off just as you have merged into freeway traffic!
