Response to coolant temp vs cylinder bore wear

Thanks Tinman that was informative for sure! I posted in my thread that the engines seemed to have a extended life in that 170-180 range which your article pointed out! I mention the 160 stat for the c-motor which I use but I also state that my engine hits 200 in a pull then cools to 180! I beleive with the added combustion temps from engine mods you need a lower stat than stock to bring you in line. This is the very reason I was preaching! Just because a engine has a certain stat does not mean it will run at that specific temp, especially guys in the southern hot climates! Steve
