I changed a 2001 engine thermostat to a 180 would any one know if the computer would be in openloop now.
What value resistor would be needed to put coolant back at normal operating temp?
I use HP Tuners software and its license is for a truck and camero only.

use 190 deg stat. you will get better fuel mileage and less engine wear. 50% antifreeze, 50% water is good to 260 deg.
