Has anyone changed their thermostat to 170 to get the running water temperature down?

Thanks for the help.

I have a 180 in mine and the temps stay in check. Even during the 100+ temps here it only ever got to 205 and that was during a fairly decent acceleration.

Also when I was towing temps seem to stay below 215 unless I am really into it going up hill.

I have a 170 I mine. Where it runs depends on your shutters (their tuning) and outside temp.

30 degrees outside and shutters unplugged I run at 172

100 degrees outside and shutters plugged in (idk how or if BCB tuned them) it runs about 184

it’ll warm up during a hard pull but gets back down to setpoint quick
