I installed an Intense 180* t-stat. I've noticed that most of the time the engine temp stays right around 180*, but at times when im stopped, whether it's at a red light or whatever, the temp goes up to about 200*. My old t-stat was the 197* or whatever came stock in the Impala. So is this normal for my temp to get that high with the t-stat that i have installed now? I dont know if it affects anything, but i still have the stock PCM/settings. (i assume that means my fans dont come on until around 200). thanks in advance.

You might want to rebleed the system to eliminate any air.

The funny thing people forget is 180* stat only opens at 180* It's up to the fans/cooling system to maintain a lower operating temp,A custom fan control would work great with your low temp stat ;)
