My '86 Brat has a brand new radiator, new 180 'stat and a mechanical temp gauge. It holds a steady 200 degree's F durring city and freeway travel. Thats here in California on a summer day with the high's in the 90s and low 100's.

ive noticed on the 180 degree thrermos that ive put in there much smaller then the subaru 195s and the 195 seam to run the same temp as the 180 over all just the thermo opens earlyer but i will have to do more tests with the heat gun to find out.
