I've noticed on my car, the steady state temperature is about 235 F but it take a long time to reach that temperature (about 10-14 minutes of driving). Was wondering if it is safe(in the long run) to take the engine to near red line speeds before the temperature reaches steady state?
Minimum of 180*. Gotta let that turbo get nice n hot. Interesting you ask this, I wonder how many people that know nothing about FI/turbos will just flogg the shit out of their cars upon starup...
