Whether you're navigating city streets or tackling rugged terrains, a efficient cooling system is essential for your 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine. RIPP proudly introduces its Performance Thermostat, designed for the 3.6l engine to enhance cooling efficiency, this thermostat has a secret design that sets it apart from others. 

The RIPP thermostat increases the efficiency of your engine's cooling system by opening up at a lower temperature. This thermostat will open at 180°F, compared to your vehicle's standard thermostat which opens at a very hot 210°F. This allows coolant to flow through sooner, helping to reduce and maintain cooler temperatures in the engine. This is also great addition to vehicles with upgraded radiators and fans. 

The Secret: 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 serves as our secret weapon against heat, allowing more coolant flow though the system thus increasing cooling performance.

The part fits the following 3.6L Pentastar equipped vehicles:

  • Wrangler JK 2012 - 2018 (JK ONLY)
  • Grand Cherokee 2011 - 2015
  • Durango 2011 - 2015
  • Town & Country 2011 - 2015
  • Caravan 2011- 2015
  • 300 2011 - 2022
  • Challenger 2011 - 2022
  • Charger 2011 - 2022
  • Journey 2011 - 2021
  • Avenger 2011 - 2014

Pro Tips:

Engine Cooling Service: We recommend replacing the thermostat, flushing and refill the cooling system every 45,000 miles or every 4 years. This helps to remove any accumulated debris, contaminants, and old coolant, ensuring the proper functioning of the cooling system. Along with your coolant system service, check coolant expansion tanks, hoses and fittings. 

Tuning: Installing the RIPP low temp thermostat is a very effective way to lower engine temperatures. Although tuning is not necessary, with the lower temperature thermostat installed, you can take advantage of the cooler engine conditions to fine-tune fuel and timing parameters. This can result in increased horsepower and torque, as well as avoid any dash lights when operating in a very cold environment. (ie; installing a lower temp thermostat in a cold environment could trigger a warning light indicating a slowed 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 50:50 mix. However in race application or hot environment it 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 be beneficial in a race application where the engine is subjected to high loads and temperatures. Always consult with a professional as every vehicle will have it's own variables.
