When I say ground, I mean negative of the battery which is any part of the cars battery, please see previous thread I posted on another website.

I agree, this will also lead to slight overfuelling, which in turn will shorten the life of the cats (x4) You'd be much better just making sure your cooling system is in A1 condition.linuxfreakus said:I'm not so sure this is a good idea. Probably would lead to power and fuel efficiency loss, or other problems. The hotter the head and piston are, the less heat is conducted away from the burning and post-burn gases, the hotter the gases stay, the hotter they stay, the higher the pressure goes/stays, this pressure on the top of the piston is what makes it go. Many modern cars with high compression engines (which say you need premium fuel like our RR) run at 220 - 230 degrees.
What does this mean specifically? Will the temperature gauge go up indicating a pending overheat and can one still read the coolant temp from the hidden menu or does doing this mod remove the ability to read the temp from the hidden menu?Put it all back together, the only way you can now check how hot your engine is running, is by sticking it on the diagnostic machine
The heater is there to force the thermostat open in anticipation of high heat demands, removing this will mean that the engine coolant will already be super heated. IE, when you floor it going up a hill whilst towing the heater will come on and force the 'stat fully open so you get maximum cooling effect. Rather than just waiting for 110C coolant to reach the 'stat.jhepworth said:I have been told 2 stories on what the wires that run into the thermostat on these do:
1 - it is just used to read the temperature at the thermostat.
2 - it is a "heating element" made to heat the thermostat area so it opens faster.
I find both of these to be a little silly... I would assume it is:
3 - some sort of tension control on the thermostat so it opens some or all the way.
Any help on this one? Did i wire it wrong or do i need a new thermostat?
