Drill your own LT1 thermostat?

After 10 years of ordering the drilled 160 degree upper thermostat for my LT1, I'm wondering if I can just buy the automotive and drill it myself. Has anyone done it? Any problems with it?

Thanks...

Love the 94, but the PT boats did not have a spray pocket mod. My buddy had one. The spray pockets were identical to my 94. I was hoping to see a spray mod to try to imitate it, but, no dice.

Well, it's better, but not quite solved. I tested the fuel pressure at prime, idle, WOT, and for a leak down. It's all perfect. I checked my temp sending unit, and it's fine. I realized there was...

LT1 coolant temp sensor

I'm changing out my water pump on my '94 LT1. I can't get the coolant temp sensor out of the old pump. I guess after 19 years, I could use a new sensor.

I agree $8,500 is a steal. I can tell you, I've had offers many thousands higher than that for my '94, which is not for sale.

I wonder if that boat has weight balance issues or a strange prop or something. On my 94 190, it has to be a really strong headwind (like 18-20 mph) and almost not worth skiing to get spray at 28. ...

It's ok. It's a little tight, but it's a lot easier than getting off the oil filter. You just don't have to unscrew the container very often.
