I thought he was originally referring to your video.

Also most late model cars are engineered to run 210*-220*
Search Ls1 Thermostat debate on google, theres no one good answer to this. I did some reading, talked to an engine builder I know who's been in the business upwards of 50 years and decided cooler is better. Maybe I'm wrong but I made my choice

closer to the front of the engine/water pump will give cooler readings, at the back, hotter readings.

If the cap is opening at 175*, something is wrong. Bad sensor, bad gauge, bad rad cap.

Rad caps are supposed to be tested/replaced every other year.
My temp sensor is in the head so I think it's relatively accurate. I'm pretty sure its the radiator cap so hopefully my problem will be solved. Thanks for the insight

So many comments as to my attire have stemmed from that video. I presume that many disapprove, though I have yet to receive constructive criticism on the matter.

Feel free to recommend another subject which requires exploration in this manner.

I'm not sure. I have many shirts like it, though of late I have been buying a lot of solid color rayon/cotton shirts, and fewer floral-print silk shirts. This is dictated mostly by what's hanging on the shelf at Ross, a store which appeals to my inherent sense of cheapness but confounds and flabbergasts me with its poor organization and inconsistent stocking practices.
