Hi,

I am going to replace the radiator on my 2004 2.0 FXT with the Mishimoto aluminium one. Together with that, I am puting new SAMCO hoses and fresh cooler. Have any of you guys replace thermostat? I believe it is pretty simple thing. The question I have is about the sport thermostat, it will open at 64°C versus 76.5°C from the factory. Is it worth to do it? Is it going to affect the fuel consumption or power?
Mine is working fine, but it is 10 years old, and I have a really bad experience with radiator and thermostat on my old Legacy few years back, when I lost my head gasket :( So as a precaution I want to change it.

Cheers,

Lucas
