im thinking 160 to 180, that is a close guess. cars and trucks are at that running temp.

Average water temp I would say 150-200 degrees. Exhaust temps near or over 1000.

looks like someone beat me to my question..im acutally going to put on my h2o temp guage sooner or later, and was wondering the same ?.
good to have a nice idea of where it supposed to run tho.

does anyone know what temp the "temp" light on the dash comes on at? this will give me an idea of what the guage would read before the light comes on.
