    I just put a 180* thermostat in my blazer and the gauge sticks at 155* when driving. Is this to cold to run a TBI 350? Should I go back to the stock 195* thermostat?

    I put a 195 in mine and the guage usually reads about 150 or 160, but when I hooked a computer up to it it read right at 190. My conclusion is stock guages just aren't that good.
