I took a video of me accelerating, this is of course stock-fan wise, I know my low-speeds don't come on til 219f and my hs til 226f (though that is so crazy high, I guess the HEMI's are built for it as I've hit 230+) Do let me know though. This is in 55f weather, I guess if the fans aren't active the way the grill is designed it just won't cool fast? After the HS kicked in @ 226f it dropped very fast, but that just seems so high temp wise to me.

Dodge service center say it's fine until I hit the red-zone area...

The modern Hemi is designed to run hot . 200-230deg F is the normal operating temperature according to the SRT engineers.
