*Subaru* Part number for EA82 180-degree thermostat?
Posted 10 April 2008 - 03:58 PM
Does anyone have the part number for this cooler t-stat vs. the stock temp?
*Not* trying to get into the debate about whether to use Subaru part vs. aftermarket.
Is there even a 180-degree part available?

I can't fathom why you would want a cooler thermostat though. If you are running hot, it's either a problem with your cooling system, or your guage is reading wrong. Fix it right - don't band-aid it with cooler thermostat's and cause even more problems for yourself.

But I'll stick with the one I've got for now. Will be putting in aftermarket gauges in the next few weeks, so will see what temp it's running at then.

That's not a *SUBARU* T-stat.
Trust us on this. Get an OEM thermostat.
If you want better cooling get a dual core radiator. Or mount an extra heater core and fan in front of the engine bay as an *auxillary* unit.

Part number is 21200AA120. That is a 180 thermostat. It is the correct part for a EA-82 engine. It is what is available in the 85 GL-10 I just got rid of. That is straight from the 85 parts catalog. Also was the correct thermostat for my 84 Brat with a EA-81.
Just so folks know, Part number is 21200AA120 is NOT a 180 degree thermostat. I ordered one from 1stsubaruparts.com and it is marked 88 degrees C, which converts to 190.4 degrees F.
Not a big deal to me, since I was ordering other parts anyway and it only added $10.76 to the order, and I'll save it as a spare, but just wanted to let others know.
