Question Thermostat Question

Hey all...

Many have told me that if I use a lower degree thermostat, the computer will not work properly... and i would need to replace the chip with a custom one, is this true?

97 3.8, with a 197 degree thermo (autozone told me that is the standard degree for my tbird)

Thanks in advance,

Depending on how low you went it might not go into closed loop operation. Also unless the PCM was reprogrammed to have the fans come on at a lower speed it would still get hot like stock.
