Dodge Charger The Dodge Charger. The car that made its competitors shiver in the 60's is reborn in 2006 into a sleek sedan that can still send the competition home wimpering, the Dodge Charger.

Any help would be nice. Thankyou.
See this whole 180 degree T-stat confuses me. I was all set on a Mishimoto 180 and then was informed of the Diablo tune I would need to set the fans. Is this not an expensive tune, is there not a way to just set the freaking fans? Will a 180 cause the ECM to throw error codes on startup?, operating?, other time?

I have a 2018 Charger SP and on the way home the other day in bumper to bumper traffic she went to the highest temp I have seen to date, 220 degrees. Less then 17k miles on the car. While this still maybe within tolerances, I don't like it and if I can find a solution to keep the temps lower in this traffic (we have a lot) I am going with it.

I am thinking about a Gates or Motorad 190 so I could probably squeak by with no tune.
