Re: new to the scene

The stock gauge usually varies from car to car but with the stock thermostat, running on the "RM" of NORMAL is typical.

Here's the factory fan on/off temps for reference: Low on: 208 *F, High on: 224 *F

190-215 would probably be the stock range for temp

You are correct. I have an actual gauge in my car and it will run between 180 and 210 usually (I have a 180 t-stat but 190 or 195 is stock). If its hot out and im sitting in traffic I've seen it get up to 230 but that isn't a normal occurance.
