Worth it to replace the thermostat and housing. If you can spring for a billet housing, you should never have to worry about a leak there. No need for the 203 thermostat.

You're correct to suspect the cups. You could pressure test the coolant system with the injectors out to be sure it's not the heads, but I've also never heard of a cracked head on these. As far as...

Start tracing wires and see where you have power and where you don't. Do you have power at the fuse? Do you have power at the headlight switch? Each of these has a separate ground so it should be a...
