I like my engines to run a bit cooler... so when I have to change mine, I'll be picking up the 160.

160 is too cold except for blown cars. it can actually eventually cause some of the oil in your car to sludge up.

what monkey said is universally agreed on, though i can't vouch for anything below a 180. stock is 192 fyi.
