OldBogie, by raising the temperature you mean running a hotter thermostat? I have a 195 in it now, but the cap is just a Stant replacement cap, so maybe it's 15-16lbs.
Yeah 195 to 210 is what I'm thinking. For pressure something like an 18 to 22 pound unit if you have a brazed aluminum radiator. 16-18 if an epoxied aluminum, aluminum with plastic tanks or a soldered copper brass.
