Yup....200 deg wind is pretty hot! Add in the radiant heat of the engine and trans, and it feels pretty dang hot under the hood.
It really all sounds normal to me. IF the engine temp is not getting above 220 for more than a short while, everything sounds good to me. A brief foray into a little higher temps in traffic, or on really
hot days wouldn't bother me either. I just put a new rad in my '94 a couple of weeks ago(it sprung a leak), and I have noticed the engine temps overall have dropped only 4-5 degrees across the entire operating spectrum. Now, instead of it running around 216-220 on the road, it stays closer to 212-216 all the time. I'm happy wid dat.
