I just put my stock airbox back in and removed my FWI and bought another thermostat from Oreillys (had holes drilled in the other). Seems like it warms up almost at the same pace but oh well its already done and I dont feel like switching them back out lol

I have a stock, 195* t stat... in never gets hot enough here to use the colder one.
My modified version FWI IS the stock air box modified to pull air from the fender.

Yep. Stop and go traffic will definately make it warm up faster.

When my wife lived in SD she used to block 1/2 of the radiator with a piece of cardboard to aid in bringing the engine up to operating temp. The heater always blew warm air and the car never overheated. YMMV.
