Could anyone tell me where to buy a 160 degree thermostat for a 2000 996 with out buying the houseing with it. LN Engineering sells the thermo and houseing as a unit; so why would I need another houseing? Along with that, I do believe it would be a good upgrade. Anybody got any ideas?

LN also has them available without the housing; provided you have the special tool to swap them out........otherwise buy it in the housing (tool cost over $100, but you can also make your own).............

I have one in my personal car, as well as several customers that use it as well. It really helps to lower the engine oil temps as well as the coolant (the M96 actually runs much hotter than the grossly inaccurate dash gauge indicates). We have also observed an improvement in UoA’s after switching……….

Interesting, as they had been offering them to shops that way, and selling the required tool as well. Perhaps it wasn’t a financially attractive approach.

Currently, LN/Raby are the only ones I know of offering them in North America (and I have looked), so I guess you are stuck with the housing………….

A clarification - we've never sold the thermostats without housings. There is a reason we don't want a new tstat in an old housing. The new housings are slightly improved in design and they also haven't been heat cycled a bazillion times.

Also, it's worth mentioning if you try to order just the insert, the part number now supersedes to the insert and lid (housing) last time I checked.
