Hello Everyone,

New member here. I picked up a Nova with a swapped motor (96 LT1). Recently changed the water pump and thermostat and ran into a problem where the thermostat in the car is not similar to what I purchased and recommended as stock 180 thermostat at auto parts store. See attached pictures, does anyone know whey the one my car is taller (right side of pic)? So new thermostat on left and the one in my car is on right. Wondering why person who swapped motor in used this type of thermostat. I am using stock AC Delco water pump as replacement.

Hey, the one on the right is the correct part for the 96 LT1. I think it has something to do with the reverse cooling on the LT1 engines whereas the one on the left is for the traditional SBC.
