ECT-EOT ok?

I've been running 70-80 mph for about 4 hours now unloaded. It's 63 outside. I'm seeing 184 ECT and 196 EOT. Is it time for a cooler again? I've got 51000 on this one.

No. You are fine. Two things. 1. Replace T-stat 2. Need to check deltas at a slower speed like 60-65. After 4 hours, my deltas @ 70-75mph are 11-12 degrees. While doing 60mph, my deltas are at 7 degrees so you can see how the higher speeds cheate the higher temps. I also have switched out my coolant to ELC so I'm quite certain my oil cooler is just fine.

T-stat is easy... you just need to have some coolant with you to replace the stuff you'll lose when pulling the t-stat housing off. Next step is putting a coolant filter kit on. After that you'll want to change out your coolant and replace it with EC-1 rated ELC collant.
