Mishimoto 160* Tstat

Purchased the Thermostat but doesn't come with any instructions, is anyone currently running the Mishumoto? and if so can you kindly advise "how to" install?
also purchased a tune and couldn't find any instructions on how to save the stock tune before loading custom tune. Im sure its posted in threads somewhere but havent been able to locate it yet, can someone please point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance!

As far as saving the stock tune, if it's the SCT it automatically saves the stock tune when you go to load a new tune. You can then pull the stock tune from the device with the software.

Here's a writeup I found for the thermostat. Really easy to change.

Good to see this mod catching on. If the 160* doesn't work out for you I've read that the Reische 170* is a higher quality unit that our cars seem love. Let us know how you like it once your tuner gets it dialed in.

installed the Tstat with the tune, car feels amazing. Temp is steady around 178-185* only thing is when I turn on the heater it blows cold air. is this normal? or did i ef something up? other than the heater issue, I'm super happy with how the car is performing.

Be sure you did not get air in the system. There should be no reason that you are not getting any heat. T-stat makes a bigger difference in performance than most realize.

Basically you want to "burp" your cooling system to remove the trapped air. Start with a cold engine. Remove the radiator cap and fill it to the recommended level of coolant. I believe you would need your heat on full blast to make sure coolant goes into the heater core as well.
