205F Thermostat Mod

I bought this for $7:

And converted into this:

Stock 180F:

205F taken apart and adjusted diameter:

Stock and 205F compare:

RTV as gasket and JB-Weld for the holes:

Final product:

I commute only 5miles, now my truck runs up to 86C instead of 73C.
Also the tranny's clutch engages sooner and stays stable fix.
