I will say that it makes me feel better knowing I'm not the only one running higher temps. I still don't think 200+ is ideal for a 22re though.

I've been daily driving a 22R (stock engine/radiator) for almost 10 years. It runs a constant 180-185. A couple years after I got it I blew a head gasket. I new something was wrong when the temp hit 190, sure enough blown head gasket. The temp is always so consistent that I new right away something was up when it hit 190.

Ted at Engnbldr says "190-200 is normal for a 22re, above 215 is dangerous."

LC Engineering told me "205+ is head gasket territory".

Jerry at 22reperformance  said "190-192 is the safe range"

Plenty of people on this forum saying their 22re's run between 180-190 under all conditions.

At this point I'm done babying it, I'm just going to drive it.  Thanks for the boost of confidence guys  :thumbs:

I'm just grateful it wasn't worse.
The tent had a metal tube frame.  one of the tubes landed on the sun roof and crushed the roof in a couple inches, where the tube hit it. I can't believe the sunroof and windshield didn't break. A lot of the damage to the roof popped out when I got the tent off. Hopefully I will have some luck popping out the rest.

I remember hearing somewhere that you can use boiling water to pop dents. I have my doubts but I may give that a try when the weather warms up.

I've never been to Tahuya. Unfortunately I cant make this one. Hopefully I can make a run with you guys in the spring.
