Wahler Thermostat

Hello guys, I'm trying to order a new thermostat but I'm getting conflicting reports on whether or not this will fit. So do all R171's take the same style of thermostat? I just want to know if it will work before I start tearing into my motor.


Wahler Thermostat:

And this one has the same part number "W0133-1778058" but says only 2006 to 2011:

Thanks guys!

Nostromo, yes there are 2 different p/n's, depending on the engine #.

And grovefromnh, the price for the Wahler is a good price. It costs more at MB for the same tstat... and no, it doesn't include labor. The MB tstat is NOT the tstat we've known and loved previously; it's WAY more complicated AND expensive

"Think as I think," said a man,"Or you are abominably wicked; You are a toad."
And after I had thought about it, I said,
"I will, then, be a toad."(Thank you, Steven Crane)

Think outside the box!
