Sourcing low temp thermostat in Canada

I am trying to find a Canadian source for a low temp thermostat - ordering from Pelican is a no-brainer except for the shipping, exchange and duty getting things up to the great white north. Autopartsway has a Wahler part # WAH2048282 indicates that it is for "warm regions". Their other one, part# WAH1836323 makes no reference to warmer climes. They can't tell me the Temperature spec's for each one. Would it be safe to assume that the first one is the 160 deg stat?

Donít assume anything.
Email AutoPartsWay and get the skinny from them.
Barring that, reach out.
My local indie sourced my LTT for me and got me a better price on a Pieburg water pump than I could get from AutoPartsWay.

This is the Wahler low temp thermostat for the Boxster.

The 71 in the first part number denotes temp. It's also stamped inside on the thermostat itself.
