I would love to come down and watch the cam timing be done.

I've actually seen it posted, with regard to operating temps that:
*you'll make less power at a cooler operating temp
*You'll wear out your engine
*You fill your crank case with water
*....among other made-up concerns.


Each of those points, plus more, were all addressed in THIS THREAD that is a great read, with videos, pics and hard data from read dyno tests.

Based on quite a few back to back dyno pulls I've found the car makes best power in the 165-175 range with oil temps up around 200

Emissions likes warmer operating temps, I don't think all of the above fits based on my experiences.

not driving the car is worse than running it at 175
