Default Coolant temps?

Now that I have the MS hooked up I obviously am getting a lot more info than the gauge provides (which seems to be either, cold, less cold, warm and overheat).

Wondering what temps people see when running? I'm seeing around 200f while moving. I do not have an undertray and am not sure I could put it back on if I wanted to at this point as my IC and what not get in the way.

Ducting is needed, either undertray or DIY.

200F is normal if you are running the factory thermostat and no reroute.

Find a way to put the undertray on because the cooling system was designed to use it. That is step 1.

200 degrees when moving is not terrible but with proper undertray and ducting should be under 200 degrees when moving WITH THE FANS OFF.

If your cooling system is working properly your fans should only come on in stop and go traffic (or slow crawl) and when you are parked.

No reroute. Need to do some DIY ducting. Haven't heard fans on except stopped.
