Ford F-250 1987-1988, PowerStat™ Thermostat by Hypertech®. To complete your performance package, Hypertech recommends the use of a low-temp thermostat to complement the performance tuning found in the Hypertech Power Tuning products. Available in both 160° and 180° range, the PowerStat low-temp thermostat improves performance in two ways: first by inducing less heat into the intake air and second by reducing the engine’s tendency to detonate.

Since its founding in 1985 in Tennessee, Hypertech® has been an industry leader in engine power enhancement through the use of software enhancements. In 1986, Hypertech created the original "power chip" which physically replaced factory engine control computers and increased horsepower and torque through remapping of computer-controlled fuel injection and ignition timing. As computer controls spread to other vehicle systems such as transmissions, throttle bodies, and variable-valve timing over the years, Hypertech was instrumental in software development that maximized the benefits of each of those systems to push the envelope of performance and fuel economy. In 1994, Hypertech was instrumental in creating the Power Programmer application which made it possible to download software enhancements into an existing ECU, which eliminated the need for replacement chips. Hypertech continues to lead the way today, and our virtual store is proud to sell their range of innovative tuners that offer features competitors haven't even thought of yet.
