    I would get it with the housing. I tried to pull my thermostat out of the housing and it was impossible...but I might have just been doing something wrong

    The LS1 comes with the housing and the thermostat as one unless you get the upgraded LS2 design. I have a 160 in mine and I noticed no difference. If you're fans are set to come on at stock settings then the 160 won't matter.

    it shouldn't be too hard. The best way to pull it out is to press it againg the floor and then twist it to release.

    Make sure the thermostat you purchase is "fail safe", that is to say if the thermostat fails, it fails in the open position.
