180 .. unless you are modded more than me, you shouldn't need or find any use for the 160

I am running a drilled 180, and did all winter with no problems, Just changing the thermostat wont keep the car much cooler unless your on the highway or have a re-programed computer that turns the fans on at a lower temperature.
