Default 180* T-Stat!!!

So im looking to order a 180* T-stat from zzperformance and its 9.99 plus the cheapest shipping is 6.71.

17 Dollars for a T-stat seems kind of expensive, ive heard of people picking up 180* t-stats for 5 bucks from napa auto parts.

Is there a better place to order from on the internet for cheaper?

Go to a local parts store and have them match one for yours... i got a 180* thermo identical to the 195* for mine for less than $6.00 from Oriellys... but mines a different year model

but i dont think its worth that much money either... possibly if doing a bulk buy but for one part... look around town first

Every time I needed on they just went in back and got it. In fact I think Wal mart may even carry them.

Usually they can match one from a different model to work on yours

like my 180* isnt TECHNICALLY for my car, but its the same shape, size, everything except it opens at 180 vs 195... so i dont care what it goes on, just that it works... go and talk to them, theyll find one or tell you where to go to find one
