Yep, stick with oem. If the nissan cooling system is working correctly it will allow a black hardbody to sit in traffic in Alabama in the middle of summer with the a/c running and the needle should never move above a needle width below half scale.

i sincerely disagree with the "stay oem" ive never had a DOA tstat or had a problem using one. most of the time the problem is people dont bleed the system properly and get some massive bubble in the head that leads to overheating.
