Just curious as to what other peoples Vipers are running at? I am a bit worried that mine is running hot. I've tried burping the system a couple times and am contemplating putting in bleed valves. My car runs anywhere from the 190 to 225 region.. it never climbs above the 225 in traffic, and on the open highway usually runs in between the 3 center bars.

I don't think I ever get up to 225. Maybe a little less, but the gauges are shit and the could easily be calibrated off by 5-10 degrees. I agree with Anthony...seems about right.

With my cooling system mods, on the freeway, in 6th I run about 165-170..no matter how hot it is outside. In 5th, Ill run about 185. In the city the car runs between 190 to 205. Rarely does it ever see 225....never over.

Mine runs cool too at hiway speeds with the 180 therm.

Smoke sc is intercooled, so it's really not comparable to a na car.
