Apparently it was enough to cause an air bubble in my system which made the engine temp creep up. Burped the system and all is well with the gauge. I don't think my cooling systems problems are solved because even after 20 mins of spirited driving this evening my lower radiator hose is at ambient temp (first time i've ever felt it). I have an 04 WRX with 93k miles. My heater has always blown VERY hot since i bought it. I think i'm going to go with the mishimoto 60C thermostat. I pretty much just made this post so people could search it but any feedback is appreciated.

    Don't go with an aftermarket thermostat, standard Subaru's are just fine.

    Well i decided to do a stock thermostat since i'm mostly stock and after reading up on it. I'm draining my radiator right now prepping for the install.... but the coolant isn't draining out of the radiator! The plug is pulled and about a gallon came out but under the radiator cap i can still see the fluid. Could this be a plugged radiator? I have the car jacked up on the drivers side only if that matters with this car. Please help! Thanks!!
