Not sure on the 180. I went with the Stant 195 balanced sleeve. Got it from Pep Boys...Not cheap, was 20 something bucks. Works well, dropped temp 12-15 degrees overall on most driving conditions. Make sure you get the o' ring gasket correctly fitted on lip. Part # is 14429.

Re: Thermostat part number

180 degree
NAPA #532080
Stant #45478

192-195 degree
NAPA #532090
Stant #???

These will work. But,they are not the by-pass type t-stat.

A better fit is the napa# 154 It is a 1990 mazda mpv with the 3.0L V-6
this is still not a perfect fit. It's a 64mm not a 63mm. I had to do a little file'n and had to cut 2 coils off the by-pass spring to match the stock hemi spring pressure. It's 180* stat. and has the big flow opening.

My 203* (stock) stat is back in

The first tank of gas I did not notice mpg loss. By the 2nd and 3rd tank mpg's were bad.

I have a 5.7 ram not a 6.1 You might be ok or not, just beware. If I bought a chip to tell the ecm that 180* was full op temp it would(should)work.
