170 degree thermostat for 15 bux!

So I see the 160 and 169 degree thermostat going for 25 to 50 bux but I'm a cheap ass. I grabbed a Stant 170 degree thermostat and felpro seal for the stock thermostat at O'Reilly's. The thermostat is the same diameter and a hair shorter but that shouldn't be an issue.
I'm going to use this when I pull my top end off to do my cam swap.

Let us know how it works. The 169*F stat is the right temp (IMO) to run for most bolt on/cammed cars. It would be nice if there was an option that was so absurdly expensive.
