Radar said:I have a Hypertech Stage 2 chip in my 89 convertible. I think the Stage 2 is the same as the Stage 1 except the cooling fans are set to come on at 174 degrees so a 160 engine thermosata is needed.
I also have installed a 160 degree engine thermostat. The car runs great and has much better pull out of the hole as well as WOT. My mileage seems good, I get 26 MPG on a sustained highway trip. The car also easily passed Wisconsin emissions.
Hope this helps.

I really love my 89. Do you have a lot of dash squeaks? I have one really annoying one that seems to come just right of the center of the dash. What a pain! I paln to put the dash upper cover off this winter and find that monster and exterminate it. I also have the Bose stero and two dead amps. That is my winter project.
Hope this helps!
