: temp readings

10-07-07, 09:01 PM
I feel fairly certain that this issue has been discussed ad nauseum in the past, but I did a search and couldn't find a thread specific to the V's. So at the risk of being repetitious, can someone tell me what the water temp max should be? My '07 seems to hit about 220 within five minutes of start-up. This seems high to me, but just don't know....and you guys are the experts.:hmm:

Seems a bit high to me. Mine runs 195 max all the time ... of course, Rick's tune has played a part of this. Today, it was 87 for a big chunk of the day while doing some Sunday driving, and there it was ... 195.

Maybe a StealthV tune is in order. ;)

I see 220 degrees pretty often, but not 5 minutes after startup. It usually takes at least 20 minutes with some stop and go traffic along with heavy air conditioning usage to hit 220.
