Coolant level is good, engine temp gets to the 170 180 range and the hoses feel normal. I did put cardboard in front of the radiator which pushed it up to around 200 engine temp and I get a little more warm air, but not much. Also, it takes 20 minutes of 60 MPH to get it up to that 200 temp. I don't have a thermometer to put on the vent, but it isn't near as warm as it should be, maybe 1/3 as hot as it should be.
