If you are getting the power you want it should be just fine if not, It wont hurt to go up another 10-20 deg.

200 sounds like your engine is running cool. But like Eddy said as long as you are gett ing the pwoer out of it you should.

What kind of temp gauge are you using?
I noticed that my Raytek IR temp gun will read about 20° higher than my MIP digital temp gauge with sensor loop.


In any case, I agree with the other guys. If you are getting the power you need, then you are just fine, and your engine will probably last longer too.
