Any here try the mishimoto thermostat for the 350z? It opens at a lower temp then the NISMO (according to manufacturer) but i dont know in regards to quality... Pretty hard to beat OEM but damn its only like $60. WOnder why the nismo is so much considering the reg OEM thermostat is about $60 vs the $195 of the NISMO. Let me know what you guys think!

dunno, guess one way to find out . lol So it must be because you are in HI as far as the prices being a bit higher than normal. A 350Z regular thermostat is 23.00 bucks here at my dealer. Got a link on the mishimoto thermostat?

Thanks for the link, nice find, it does appear to be the 80 dollar one though, not the 60 dollar one 959frontier.

Nice find!
Gonna keep this in mind when it's time to replace my T-stat(Nismo 68*c).

Only issue is that you may need to be tuned to run it. I know a stock Z Tstat will work. A Nismo Z Tstat works but is close. Now an even cooler Tstat, idk about that unless you are boosted.

I wonder if XterraHines will try it when he rebuilds his motor or if Brutal will try it when he goes dual forced?

Saw it on eBay for about $65. X2 on getting a tune. Just lookin at some other options for when I do the swap. Prob paying for the nismo name with the other thermostat.
