Normal... :cheese:

However, if you want the best out of your engine, you want the water temp to be no more than 60 degrees, which is 30 degrees less than normal.

mine has a stage 1 1275 and it runs quite cool.

about half way between the blue bit and half way.

Think it has a different thermostat in to normal though

Mine runs halfway between the blue and the halfway mark now its winter, but in the summer it runs below halfway in normal driving and traffic, but goes up above halfway when going about 80 on the motorway.

I think my temperature sensor is buggered. Mine never leaves the blue bit at the bottom. And yes, the coolant is full... :thumbsup:
