been looking at cool running thermostats tonight, apparently then help the z16's warm up quicker.
Do they? if so do they make a noticeable difference?

thanks in advance

NOTE: its the same as the one in the mechanical setcion however i didnt get any replies

The thermostat will open at a lower temperature which will start the coolant circulating earlier then on a standard car it means theoretically your warm up time (the time taken for the stat to open/the engine to reach full running temperature) will be reduced I've heard some good reviews about these however I can't comment as I haven't fitted mine just yet hope this little information helps sorry if it doesn't
