Keith, I can't tell you for sure without knowing what specific EEC your car has, but my 95 SC w/ EEC-IV also uses 170 degrees as the primary breakpoint. My advice is that a 180-185 thermostat would more than likely be OK, but I'd avoid a 160.
If you know, or get, the 4 character code on your EEC, I might be able to tell you for sure, or at the very least, direct you to a message board where you can get an answer.
