I see 205 at idle and 215 under boost pretty much under any condition.

But I think I'm running a 195 thermostat since it is so ******* cold. Car warms up pretty well, I've never seen above 214 to my recollection.

something like that. I had alot of air in the system Once I got it bled right it was much better. I then determined I wasn't getting enough air flow so cut a hole in the bumper and installed a mini cooper scoop. After that the temps were perfect. Then after nearly 1000 miles my head gasket then suddenly decided to give out......
