Summertime Numbers?

Well it's heating up here in South West Louisiana and I'm towing a lot with hay season upon us, so I'm curious if my CTS numbers are in line with y'all's.
Empty
ECT- 198-205
EOT- 200-208
TFT- 160ish

Towing
ECT- 205-220 (Never stays at 220 long.
EOT-207-226 (Towing Heavy)
TFT-165-180ish (Usually hangs out around 175)

My EOT is usually 6-8 degrees warmer than my coolant. I had oil cooler, studs, gaskets etc done about 11,000 miles ago. Like I said, just wondering what other folks' temps are running. Y'all take care!

Looks good to me. That is pretty close to the range that mine runs in.

As its been warming up here my numbers have gone up a bit. Coming home from work yesterday I saw low 200s on the ECT and EOT. My numbers are well within spec being 6-8 degrees apart. Everything seems to be working well since I had all my work done a couple months ago. I'd say your numbers are fine for the warmer weather. I don't have any towing numbers for mine though.

Looks OK to me. I towed about 11,000 pounds Memorial day weekend in heavy traffic and it was hot. My EOT was 202-215 and the ECT was 198-208.

Your numbers look good when towing. I haul a 16k# 5er and will see the 200-220 ranges but my ECTs and EOTs still stay within 12 degrees only spreading wider for short durations like during long grades, hard accelerations, etc.

I tell you my eyes stay glued to the monitor when I tow anything long distance. I should be less concerned but I dont have a ton done to mine - IDP tow tune and a coolant filtration kit, and 4" exhaust.
