    Thermostat replacement

    Took my 2001 Ex with 112,000 miles to local shop for a new timing belt and water pump and asked them to replace the thermostat with a 180F unit, (versus Honda's 170F). The shop refused stating possible problems with engine computer systems at the higher temperatures.
    Has anyone changed out their thermostat to a 180F and experienced any engine problems?

    May I ask, how much for the service? The best dealer price in Chicago a few months ago was $695 for OEM timing belt, accessory belts (2), water pump, coolant, plus a free rental car.
