Too big. TR55'* should be gapped at .055". The part number has no relationship to the gap, btw.

Woah! Pay ZZP'* price when you can buy these locally just about anywhere? And a Stat, too. No shipping, no ZZP markup.

I know for a fact Napa has the TR55'* in stock, and can get the TR6'* overnight. They also sell Stant 180 thermostats. Including markup and shipping, ZZP might cost you twice that.

Got a Napa?

There'* no such thing as a 'performance' stat. Buy it at Autozone.

$30 for TR55'* at NAPA? Bull. Somebody is raping you. These are about $2 each off the shelf.

My local NAPA has TR55'* in stock for $1.79 each.

Try Keesville Auto Parts (NAPA) at the Skyway shopping plaza in Plattsburgh, or on Rte 3 in Plattsburgh. Price should be the same.
