I don't see any reason you would need a lower opening t-stat.
Go stock.
I just got a new thermo from autozone, a whole $7, it's rated at 170* i believe, at least thats what the kid's screen said. Eitherway, my stock one was messed up, took forever to warm up the engine. Honestly you have no reason to get the nismo thermo.
Don't waste your money on it just because it says NISMO. No one will see it and for the street, why would you want to have it open so soon?
