depends on your compression ratio, iron/aluminum heads, octane of fuel, and lots of other stuff. my 350 loves 195*, it really rockets up. i also have to keep premium fuel in it and if it sits too long i have to put additive in the fuel or it will try to run backwards when i shut it off. i say try it out and see what happens. its not like its going to blow up and a t-stat is under 20 bucks. i'd turn the timing down a couple degrees just to be safe tho.
