Engine Temperature

Hey Guys I Have A Question I Just Purchased An All Aluminum Radiator My Temperature On A Hot Day And Me Running It For A Distance Was 190-200 With This One Now It Runs 150-160 But Usually In About 60 70 Degree Weather It'll Run About 130 140 Is This A Bad Thing? I Have A 350 With A Cam Edelbrock Intake This Is My Second Temperature Gauge And It Reads The Same So The Temperature Is Right Any Suggestions? Thanks

I don't see any temperature problems from reading your numbers. Don't worry about it, seems fine.

I'd put a hotter thermostat in it if it was mine. I really don't like paying for unburnt fuel.
