Default Engine Temp??

Hi all

Just wondering what Engine temps are acceptable before engine damage is done?

Tuning is no drama for me but i am looking at one of the Venom Racing temp guages that is a perminant fixture on the car....Does any one have any feed back on these guages?

Cheers

Just depends on the engine, some engines run at top performance in the low 200 degree range some in the closer to 300 degrees. Try not to tune to temp. As long as you have good smoke and your performance doesn't drop, then you should be ok.
