yeah, i'd agree with the 180* thermostat approach too. i did that a few months back, and it worked really well. the a/c runs well in stop & go in the summer, negligible difference w/ emiisions, no difference in gas mileage. heck, even the alternator seems to work a little better being 10* cooler.

in traffic, it never goes over the 220, and usually about a tick below it.

on the highway, still about that 150*/160* mark, that's mostly controlled by the front air dam though.
