Default Running warmer

2008 Alpha
Changed thermostat, runs no cooler.
Are any mods available for any aftermarket cooling kit?
Thanks for any help

The dash temp gauge is basically useless, more of an idiot light with a needle. Yours might say 3/4, mine might say 1/2, the actual temp could be cooler in yours than mine. You need to scan through the OBDII to read actual temp. My replacement T Stat keeps coolant temp at 193-195F, right were it is supposed to be.

I do have a CSF aluminum radiator, runs the same temp as my old OEM did just doesn't build much above that on hot humid days in stop & go.

Anything 3/4 or below is normal and designed to run that way.
