210 degrees? is this normal?

[SIZE=3][COLOR=navy]I was looking over some pics in the SS gallery and noticed someone's dashboard pic plainly showed the temp gage at 210 degrees. So I made a point to look at mine the next time I drove it. After it's fully warmed up, it never drops below 210 degrees! Has anyone else noticed this? Is it a gage anomaly or do these have a 210 degree thermostat?[/COLOR][/SIZE]

It sounds about normal. The TB/EN bay isn't the best for cooling larger engines. My Denali never moves off 210, even going up or down the steepest hills.

While the gauge reads 210, the ECT (at least from what I've seen) is about 185-190.

Yep, a little off-topic, but my 02 I6 never strays from slightly below 210, except if I am towing too fast up the Pass (Snoqualmie Pass) when it can hit about 220-230. I just back off and it returns to normal quickly.

Now That's a good enough reason to upgrade to a SS
That way it would never stray from 210.
