    hello all,
    Looking for input regarding thermostat selection for stock LS2. A lot of noise out there, looking for input based on your experience.
    Thanks in advance

    My input, there is too much input for such a small decision. Just go to Autozone and buy a stock replacement. Why is it more complicated than that?

    If I remember correctly, the factory temp settings are pretty high on the LS2, at least the fan activation temps.

    Stock is like 195. If you decide to swap it out for a 180 or even a 160, you'll need to change the fan temp setting too.

    Pretty sure stock Tstat is 186F. Having run a 2005 Ls2 drivetrain, The factory fan activation settings were up there, especially the high.
