^That certainly seems too high IMO. My 4.7L with 3.55's towed ~4,000lb at about 65-70mph from orlando to north carolina and never saw engine coolant temps above 200 deg until we got to the mountains at deal's gap and we were crawling at more like 30-40mph and at the end of the climb it got up to around 220 deg. If it wasn't the end of the hill I would have pulled over to cool down. I do also have a 180 tstat and a stall converter. I'm going to be swapping back to stock converter to see how much of a difference that makes.
