    I was just wondering what temp range ya'll were runnning in? I run about 210 without the A/C on and about 220-230 with A/C in 90 degree heat. Is this normal, because I am worried with summer coming and temps in the 100's here in Tx that I will be running too hot.

    Thats about right. If it gets over 230 you may start running into some problemos.
    Just make sure your anti mixture is good and your fan is working properly.
    I run right at 210 220, but I dont run the air, less the wife is with me.

    Also, you may want to get some soap mix that you can spray from a bug spray dispensers and spray in on the radiator and wash it off real good. Having clean coils helps alot too. Same as having you home Air unit cleaned every year.

    Mine runs about 180 in stop/go traffic in Tucson. About 210 withg the a/c on. I run a 165 thermostat tho. Going to move to a 190 to see what happens.

    But back to the temp. Mine has ran at 210 since I have owned it. Even off road and in traffic......its always at 210.....
