160 Degree EOT Too cold??

Well I got my Edge Evolution last night and decided to install it and cruise it around. My truck is a stick truck so I'm not too worried about the trans, and I have guages so chill on the Edge comments, lol.

To my question. My temp guage rarely ever creeps above the Cold line, so I decided to datalog the ECT and EOT. Well no ECT pid, but I did datalog EOT. Cruising the highway at 75mph, turning around 2400-2500 rpm I am only seeing 158-162. I know with my 6.0 experience that they normally runn with ECT and both are normally in the 185-200 range. Is 160 normal? I bought a 195 thermostat to put in it today since I am suspecting it of being stuck open or atleast not closing all the way.

I guess its normal with it being sub 20 degrees out from what I have read on the net. EOT got up to 176 today on the highway.

I'm just saying that it seems as if my thermo is working...?.?

I understand the 203 degree unit, but does a 8 degree opening point make that much of a difference?

It is what the engine designers wanted in here so I generally try and stick with what they decided. They are way more intelligent than I.

if its -20* out you might want to put a cold front in there to keep some heat in there. I'll bet that's your problem
