What t-stat should I have in this
engine? I put it into my 66 Mustang
this past week. Used the 4v intake
that was on my 289, was using a
195 deg t-stat. Is this to hot for
the newer engine? Don't see it
running to hot right now. It gets
just past halfway on the temp gauge
about to the m in temp at about 70
mph. What is the normal temp range
for this 302? Thanks again.

195 should be fine. I have always heard, the warmer you can run one without it over heating, the better mileage, but most here aren't worried aobut fuel mileage but performance.
