that does seem a little warm. normally they run about 200. you say the thermostat is stock. is it the original? or just the stock setting?

Well I mean, if its stock everything else is probably stock and could use a tune up. It seems fine......Though, is this city driving or highway?

Too hot. And a thermostat change won't help that. I suggest you get your cooling system flow-checked. This could be a failing water pump or a clogged radiator core. Or as simple as a bad coolant sensor.

Is that supposed to be the same for NA engines as well, running in 90* days? I remember in Kansas getting up to 240ish on the interstate, then going back down real fast.
