DRIPP 185 Degree Thermostat + Housing for Supercharged Vehicles

An efficient cooling system is essential for your supercharged 3.6L V6 engine. The RIPP thermostat increases the efficiency of your engine's cooling system by opening up at 185°F, compared to your vehicle's standard thermostat, which opens at 210°F. This allows coolant to flow through sooner, helping to reduce and maintain cooler temperatures in the engine. This is also a great addition to vehicles with upgraded radiators and fans. This thermostat and housing are ONLY for vehicles equipped with a RIPP Supercharger, as coolant needs to flow a different route.

Our secret weapon: The RIPP thermostat revolutionizes engine cooling with a unique design feature. Unlike conventional thermostats, ours incorporates a longer piston, increasing thermostat valve lift. While factory thermostats typically open at 7mm, the RIPP Thermostat has an impressive 12mm lift! This extra lift is our secret weapon against heat, allowing more coolant flow through the system, thus increasing cooling performance.

    • 2011 - Current 3.6L V6 Chrysler 300 (supercharged)

Pro Tips:

Engine Cooling Service: We recommend replacing the thermostat and flushing the cooling system every 45,000 miles or every four years. This helps to remove any accumulated debris, contaminants, and old coolant, ensuring the proper functioning of the cooling system. Check coolant expansion tanks, hoses, and fittings with your coolant system service. 

Tuning: Installing the RIPP low-temperature thermostat is a very effective way to lower engine temperatures. Although tuning is unnecessary, with the lower-temperature thermostat installed, you can use the cooler engine conditions to fine-tune fuel and timing parameters. This can result in increased horsepower and torque and avoid any dash lights when operating in a very cold environment. (i.e., installing a temp thermostat in a cold environment could trigger a warning light indicating a slow warm-up time)

Coolant Mixture: The coolant-to-water mixture in an engine's cooling system plays a crucial role in regulating the engine's operating temperature. The mixture typically consists of coolant and water. The standard recommended mixture is a 50:50 mix. However, in race applications or hot environments, it is common to adjust the ratio as deemed necessary. A higher water content enhances the thermal conductivity of the mixture, improving its ability to transfer heat away from the engine components. This can benefit a race application where the engine is subjected to high loads and temperatures. Always consult a professional, as every vehicle will have its own variables.
