i put these on when i did my rebuild. they make a great addition to any suzuki motor.
the gates low temp thermostat can be found at rockauto.com and the suzuki sport radiator cap can be found at bdmotorsports.com.
we have been having a few weeks of 90 + degree days here in atlanta, and my radiator fan hardly comes on at all. before it would run almost all the time. the only time it comes on now is when i have been driving a while and go to a fast food store and sit in the drive through for more than 5 minutes. another example is, before when i would leave my neigborhood the temp gauge would be at the middle, now it's under the half point and when i hit the main road the gauge acually goes down and stays down for a few miles.

these are great for replacements or for performance minded upgrades.
be sure to get a new gasket when doing the t-stat :-P

Some additional feedback. I too got the Gates low temp. thermostat and also a Gates radiator cap. I installed the thermostat over last weekend and my full sweep water temperature gauge last nite, and I can attest that the thermostat opened the first time just as it crossed 180^F.

Both work great thus far, and I too would recommend this as a performance mod for those who like "spirited driving".
