    i done it both ways, old car i replaced just the stat, only lasted a couple of months though, dont know whether it was the cheap ebay one i bought or something else, but on our current car, i bought the whole housing/stat with the new sensor already attached from vx, and replaced the lot for £42 all in, and 6 months on still going strong.

    got to admit, i got lazy with the draining the coolant, the coolant drained when i unbolted the housing from the engine lol

    I think it is the X18XE engine, but I haven't checked the chassis stamp, is there one under the bonnet and if so, where? The one I've bought seems a reasonable kit, stat and 3 O-rings, around 12squid. If it becoming problematic, as I want to turn this motor into a good reliable runner I'll change the lot for QH housing and stat.

    I am also going to change the water temperature sensor too while I'm at it.

    Pre 2005 then It will be the Z18XE. Its basically the same engine as the Vec B X18XE, but the main difference is that the Vec C has a Fly By Wire throttle, instead of cable operated throttle on the X18XE.
