6.0 Normal coolant temp

What temps are you guys seeing for normal driving unloaded for coolant temp. ?
Also i thought i read on here some where greater than 15 degrees separation EOT vs Coolant temp is an issue, I have also read a Ford service bulletin stating up to 25 degrees separation is acceptable. ?

At normal operating temp, you dont want your oil 15* above your coolant under normal driving. This is only after it is at normal operating temp. Driving in 90* weather I am right around 195* to 205*.

Thermostat begins to open at 193 to 195F. My unloaded ECT at cruising speed ranges from 192 to 205F, with EOT generally 8 to 10 degrees higher. If you have the latest PCM flash it should throw a code when EOT exceeds ECT by >25F.

Well.... ok. i guess i have me a clogged oil cooler than. i run around 18-22 degrees above my ECT. I thought i read up to 25 was good, but im guessing thats not the case. i would need to flush that ford crap out, then replace the oil cooler im thinking would be the best way about it
