benefit of lower temp thermostat?

Say I had a 302. What would the benefit be to run a 160* instead of a 180* thermostat? tia

Old Skool car or modern car?

Modern car, the computer will think it's not up to operating temp's and supply more fuel. (Like an old carb'd engine choke with the thermo thingie.)
