If you use a cheap stat you might get a code.
If you use a Jet stat you wont.

There are a million reasons to change out the stock 203 degree stat.
Heres a few.
Before swap:
Engine temp 201.
Oil temp 204.
Oil pressure 29-PSI.
Intake air temp:118 degrees.
After:
Engine oil temp:183-185.
Oil temp:179 degrees. 25 degrees cooler.
Intake air 102 degrees.
Oil pressure:37PSI. 20% improvement.

I cannot find the transmission numbers but they were even more dramatic.
Benifits:
Less engine detonation great for towing.
For every 10% cooler intake air supposed to be good for 1% increase in hp.
Maybe only 3.9 hp gain but ill take it.
Better oil pressure what more do you need to say.
A cooler transmission what can i say.
Oil at 204 degrees is like boiling water.LOL.
It does not do a good job of removing engine heat,and it does not lubricate any better either.
I ran a 180 stat on my 2003 2500 Hemi ram for 7 years winter and summer,
towing a tandem dump trailer 5 days a week.I found no problems with this mod.
Anyone can use ther evic and they will get similar numbers,dont take my word for it.
