Default RB S3 question

Can someone tell me what the older S3 run at for temps? Mine likes to run pretty hot and I know to tune by performance and smoke but I just want to hear from others who ran this motor before and see what temps the were running at. Thanks.

right around 240 should be good. up to and around 260 is normal with almost empty tank. as you said... look for good smoke&perfomance out of it more so than temps. also cheaper temp guns run 20degrees and more higher than high end(such as exergen). doesnt matter as long as you are aware of the possible inconsistancies of the particular gun you are using and adjust accordingly

Default Yes

130-150 F. It's a great engine, just likes to be a bit lean on the bottom, make sure it has plenty on top though.
