160 with a ton of mods, I mean a ton. 180 for a stock or modded car.

Lux, I don't remember you modding much at all yet. Go 180. The car might see the temp not getting high enough and set a check engine code with a 160.

On that part number please give gmpartsdirect.com a try.

Drilled 180. Either two 1/8" holes or four 1/16" holes.

Ok today i went to the local autostore bought a fuel filter pcv valve oil fiter and 180 T-stat along with fuel injector cleaner. so i installed the fuel filter extremely easy and the pcv was also very easy... I dont notice much my engine seems to be idlign alot better but no performance gains sofar.... Tommorow i will install 180 and oil filter. I need to drill the thermostat where ? Also there are no gaskets or o rings where my pcv valve is located is that a bad thing or is it normal?

If you bought a 180 t-stat, I dont know if you have to drill it. I thought they drilled 195'* to get 180???? Someone correct me if I am wrong???

Even with a 180 you can get warm in the summer... I can see 220 pulling off the highway..but there'* no airflow then
