As long as your engine makes good power, and runs efficiently, the only time you need to worry about the temperature is when it is too hot.

I would recommend trying to make the engine run at around at least 200 degs, which would allow all the metals in the engine to expand properly, which can help stop the engine from wearing out prematurely.

im with aaron you ought to get it up to at least 200F

when you run it colder the sleeve doesnt expand enough and the pinch at the top is too tight and will cause the rod to stretch

and i bet when you get it up over 200F you will really be impressed with the speed
