Just put a couple ball valves in your heater core lines to shut the flow off during the summer and run whatever thermostat you want for winter purposes. I had that in my dually forever. Put them in a couple log trucks also. Ice cold AC.

I don't have an issue with the ac not being cold from coolant temp, more of the fan runs a lot more often than I would like it to, or did before I went to the 203 lol..

I think I'll do the ball valves though, that's a good idea for the summer..I run good coolant, delo/cat elc, so I'm not super worried about corrosion, but I agree, almost any brass ball valve should give you a long time of corrosion free use.. one trick if you use a ball valve, use red loctite on the nut that holds the handle on, otherwise you'll go to use it and the handle will have rattled off
