I've got a 355 sbc with gear reduction and a 160 tstat. It stays around 170. After running hard, it may see close to 180. I havent had the chance to see what it does in the summer yet...

My thinking says 180° is about perfect

Around 180, 185 , on occasion will get close to 200 but that was middle of summer after running 3 miles of dry.
