    Running Temperature

    Hello All.
    I just purchased an unmolested 06 Magnum SRT8 with 37k miles. Itís in beautiful shape and runs great.
    Iíve been trying to track down some information on an ďaverageĒ temperature that these cars run from the factory. Iíve read anywhere from 200 to 230 is normal?

    Any information is appreciated.

    I believe factory thermo is 203. I used to see 203 to 230 all the time in stop/go driving 65 mi per day. Some go to 180 thermo and reset the fans but there's a reason the engineers did that.

    I am havin a hard time finding a 180 degree thermostat for my 3.5L. I am also curious as to why the fans would need to be reset. Unless I'm in traffic my fans don't run much anyway.

    The post is on an SRT8 with a 6.1L. I would venture a guess that if the 3.5L went to 230 degrees one might have to be replacing head gaskets.
