One hole always worked for me, as since the T stat doesn't seal around the plunger it acts as the secondary hole. If I did drill 2 holes at idle it wouldn't get hot enough to open, as the coolant flow through the 2 holes would circulate just enough coolant to keep it from getting hot enough to open.
