What is a normal street cruising engine temp? With lots of red lights it will go up close to 230 but then goes down to 220 or less. Summer time.

That seems a little high to me. Not scary high, but high. Maybe someone else has more experience though. I don't have a good gauge in mine yet, but my laser temp thermometer puts me around 200 usually.

I was at 210* and leaking coolant.

With a good radiator and fan, 230 sounds a little high. What temp thermostat are you running?

Around 180 is normal. It will creep to about 200, maybe 210 but then come down depending on conditions. I don't like it going above 210...

That's the range I was thinking.

I've got the stock gauge so no actual degrees but mine never goes past half way even in the heat of summer.

Yeah the stock sensor is actually pretty accurate, the gauge however has a very wide "midpoint" range. I think it will creep once you get in the 220-230 range, then move rapidly into the red.

I have an accel guage. I will do some system checking. The thermostat should be stock JDM.

I run between 180-195 with the 205 engine just for added reference.
