Default Group Buy Aluminum Thermostat Housing! All interested reply to this thread

I am going to be performing a huge tune up on my 4.0 changing out various parts since i just hit the 50k mark.
If anyone is interested in a group buy for this thermostat housing please reply to the thread.

My goal is to get 20+ members to receive the thermostat housing for $80 Each I think that's reasonable with such a big buy!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/05-10-mustan...69c622&vxp=mtr

About:
Now Available ,metal thermostat housing upper and lower for v6 4.0 Mustang. Works on all 2005-2010 mustangs with the 4.0 engine including the convertible. Comes with a new oring for the thermostat, lower housing (special seal) for connection to the head and a new oring for the temperature sensor. This is made in America and not in China. Finally an alternative to the plastic pieces that fail all the time. Only replace the parts once and your done. This is a cast aluminum engineered part made in America.

GOAL: 30+ Units
$135.00 Per Unit


18/30 Goal

I'd probably be interested for my wife's '06. We haven't had a problem yet with only about 45k miles but it's likely just a matter of time.

Talked with the distributor and so far I've gotten a Wholesale price but will keep trying to grow this list out , to get a better price .
It went from $179 now $142.
Let's keep this going I'm heading over to stangnet to get more attention.
Everyone's going to want to hop on this .

Wish this was 6 months sooner....I already purchased and replaced out my old thermostat housing with another plastic one. :/
I am still dealing with coolant leak issue, however it is not coming from the thermostat housing and am not able to find out where it is coming from!
Coolant is leaking and setting in the "V" section on the engine where the knock sensor is located.

Kevin take pictures maybe we can help pin point it with a video . I will be documenting my install.
UPDATE:
Got another $5 off the units so now we are at $135. much better than $179.00

I wish I could. It's really hard to see the coolant due to being down in the "V" of the engine, even with a flashlight and by eye. The coolant is setting directly behind the thermostat where the knock sensor is located.
