Coolant temp

What should the coolant temp run during hot summer months?
Right now it's 68 degrees out and my coolant temp usually runs about 192 but I saw it get up around 198 when it was 82 degrees

190-200 is perfect. They tend to like it hot

Mines runs at 200 here in Miami. Once warmed up sometimesI it goes to if I'm driving alot 214 that's with the temp outside @ 85
Thats one of the reasons I'm strongly considering getting the bpd air cooled oil cooler . it's just way too hot here.

Think about what you are saying...

I'll never tell someone not to get the bpd oil cooler, but if your oil is cooled by water that is 190-200* with ambient air temperature of 85* how is an ambient air temp of 100 going to change this if the coolant is still 190-200*?
Seems like a radiator/fan upgrade may be more prudent

Sounds normal to me Nickelhead.

Usual temps for me 184-194 fully warmed up. On my 4 mile trips to and from work it might get to mid/high 170's. Towing 9K about 195-210 depending on highway or city.

Hasn't really mattered what the outside temps were after a couple minutes running. Been in the high 80's all week.

another thing to consider if you're worried about high temps is get the 7.3 adapter from BPD and convert to a manual fan
