dual stage OE thermostat

This is a factory thermostat that was created to solve a certain cooling system problem on 22r/22re called "temperature overshoot". It's still a 190 degree thermostat like the original, but it has a second, smaller wax slug to help out under certain circumstances. 

ready? OK, time to get get bored.... Sometimes when using the heater, the interior fan will drop the temp of the coolant below normal operating temp. The "cooled" water that just came out of the heater core then travels past the thermostat causing the thermostat to close, because it "thinks" the coolant needs to get back up to normal operating temp. This causes your temp gauge to show overheating or wild fluctuations. 

So, as you can see, it's a pretty specific problem that it's trying to solve. As a daily driver, without this issue, I still recommend the regular OE thermostat I sell. If you are having this above issue, this could be the fix for it. 

I've been hesitant to add this to the site only for the reason I didn't want people buying it for the wrong reasons (thinking it'll fix their faulty cooling system). You guys are smart enough to know when you need it, so I'll leave it up to you.
