Temps After Head Gasket Replacement
Recently had the head gaskets and oil cooler changed along with installing ARP studs. The heads were also decked. There was signs of seepage from the gaskets. A year prior to this I changed the oil cooler and did the EGR delete and also added a Sinister coolant filter along with a flush with restore and Cat coolant installed.
With exception the second filter, all have been clean. The second on was full of gunk.
I have an SCT tuner set on the performance tune.
This morning the temps are the worse they have been since having the work done to it.
The first pic is just after getting to temp.
The second pic is 30 min later after running 20 miles on the highway at 65 mph. The ambient temp was 20 degrees. The coolant temp never went above 189 and the oil temp kept gradually going up until it leveled out where it's at.
Could this be a faulty temp sensor or thermostat? I find it hard to believe that I have clogged another cooler especially with me having fkushed the system and with the system being emptied again for the head gasket repair.
