It doesn't make sense to me either but I don't know what they use to get that number.

With the fitech sensor mine would only get to 170 when idling in traffic otherwise it dropped to 165-168 which put it into warm up mode. I'm wondering if yours might be dropping below 170 when you are driving. Right now I have the hand held controller on "Large gauges" with just the coolant temp selected and have been watching what the temp is doing, which largely is not a whole lot, it goes up to around 200 and just stays there.

Mine is a 360 with a 2 barrel, HEI ignition and TH400, 373 differential gearing. Pretty much everything on my truck is completely stock except the FI and ignition, and maybe the diff gearing, which all the literature says should be 409. I figure we should have close to the same setting but I have no idea what I should change if anything.

He's usually pretty quick to respond but sometimes it takes a little time, I've waited over a week to get answers.

Mine cranks longer than it did with the carb too. I have been slowly working on that to see if anything makes any difference. So far anything I have tried has only made it take longer. I'm considering turning off the prime shot entirely then start adding for each temperature and situation. If I ever get an improvement I'll let everybody know.
