Hi dburnash, personally I would leave it as is unless you know of some problem you have seen that may be attributable to the thermostat. If you decide to replace it, run a search and see what information is available. There seems to be some disagreement on whether a replacement unit will open as wide as the Honda unit. I have been collecting replacement part numbers for a long time and the replacement number I have is for a NAPA #101. While you have it apart, you probably should replace the radiator hoses. NAPA # 7733 can be cut to provide both.
