Performance Thermostat This 2nd generation Ford-50
thermostat is made with the same exact components as your OEM unit,
including a rubberized diaphragm, and only available from Reische
Performance. It's a direct-fit unit with proper bypass
control so you're guaranteed maximum efficiency from your cooling
system. No Chinese knock-offs here, this is the highest
quality unit currently available for this application. 100%
made in USA.
This thermostat will provide the best possible heat dissipation from
your setup and even deliver better overall performance than our
competitor's 160° thermostats. Reische believes the 170°
opening temp is the ideal balance for high performance engines,
providing high flow to your radiator by mid-180 temps while still
providing good all season performance. With proper fan
settings your coolant temps in cool weather will be in the 170s and in
hot weather the 180s, giving those running high levels of timing and/or
boost added protection against engine-damaging detonation as well as
All Reische Performance thermostats ship with a new O-ring .
Do not overtighten the thermostat housing upon installation.
