If you do PEM'*, I'd also get a 3" DP and you should have no problem running that 2.2".
While it will prob. be worse in the summer, I don't think that it will be that much worse. You are running winter gas and it you are getting more boost b/c of the weather.
I'm running a 2.2" pulley on a 95 top end, which equates to a 2.0" on a 93. With a 180 thermostat, and a stock downpipe. So you can see it varies by car. A 160 thermostat will do you no good in town, and not much on the freeway. You need alot of airflow through the radiator to work with a 160, and I don't suggest putting a bandaid on this one.
Start with PEM'* or increase the size of your pulley.
