If I understand your question correctly, you are asking what it means if your coolant temps are 200, then once you get going it drops to 160? Means you likely have a 160degree thermostat installed.

Also, if you indeed do have a 160 thermo and you see 200 sitting at idle, I'd question the fan strategy in your tune. I'm in Florida and have a 160 thermo and never see 200 and can sit at idle all day in mid summer

There's a few quality tuners within 4 hrs of you. I've used Jeremy at fasterproms in Clearwater for my last 5 cars with zero complaints and all smiles.

You need to have a reputable shop go through your car. DO NOT USE THE DEALER. They will enjoy taking your money. Do not beat on the car until you know the tune is solid and you should have a wideband as well. It sounds like it's running rich, but these platforms are not cheap and are unforgiving to mistakes. Have someone qualified look at it.

sometimes people remove items before a sale and dont bother to retune, or it was never tuned properly to begin with
From what he said, it already sounds like he hurt the car, I'll bet it had Meth...

I really hope for your sake it didn't because you probably hurt the car beating on it...judging from your replies from another thread. Then again, you bought a modified car on auction to what is obviously you don't know much about the platform, then decided to go run it hard? Anyway, good luck, you have plenty of qualified guys in South Florida, just get ready, it aint gonna be cheap if you hurt it.

Dangerous buying any modded car, and even more dangerous buying one through an auction. Like buying home reloaded ammo from someone you don't know. Mods don't add value in resale most of the time, and this is why. If the engine's done, find 40 mph, MLK Boulevard, and a bridge abutment. Stolen & wrecked! 😂
