The highest I have ever seen it is 208. City driving it stays between 197-199. Highway driving....depending on how hard I am driving and how hot it is outside...I see 199-208. It doesn't get above 203 until I am above 85 mph and temps are 90+ with 75%+ humidity.

i have been running a non synthetic 5-40 and changing it every 2500 miles just because i get the oil at a 5 finger discounted price.... but i have been running the 275 and i was thinking that the synthetic would be better with the tune...
