There has been some concern about correct cooling system and temperature gauge operation on the standard LX (300, Magnum, and Charger) versus the SRT vehicles.

The standard and premium LX clusters have a gauge that indicates from “C” to “H”, and the normal operating temperature is approximately midway between those two points.

The SRT vehicles have a gauge which reads temperature in degrees from 140F up to 260F. The normal operating range for the 6.1L Hemi is from 210-230F, so the gauge will actually read above the midpoint (200F). There’s no need for concern if the SRT gauge is reading within that 210-230F range.

Resume, I know the SRT-4s guage has caused concern from owners to it's accuracy. Meaning instead of lagging, it shows real time, meaning you will seee a difference when you come to a stop.

Of course, this is not an issue, as long as it's consistant, I'm just curious if the -8s gauge is as accurate as the -4s.
