Yep, 180.

EDIT: I did change mine to a 195df thermostat. No discernable difference.

I'd imagine that's not a bad choice for the winter.

Re: OEM VX Thermostat temp

I heard somewhere if you screw with the thermostat temp it effects the lean burn. If honda thought they could squeeze 1 more mpg out of the D15z1 by moving up to a hotter thermostat i think they would have...just my thoughts for those folks running hotter. I am sticking with OEM specs..thanks though..

I found out yesterday that I was running with literally half of a thermostat in the Stratus. The car was never getting up to temp and staying there. The lame part? I had this done 20k miles ago and didn't think to replace it until now. Not surprisingly, the same mechanic that I had 'throw' one in there(didnt think he'd break it in the process ), also botched installing the timing belt I was really paying him for in the first place.

Still gotta replace his botched work...

Okay, vent over.
