Thanks for looking at my issue.
The warm running temperature according to my gauge is 215f.
It used to be 210f on the original engine. There are two scenarios. First, I stop to get gas, the gauge reads 215f because the engine has been running and is warm, I start the engine, get a "Check gauges" light on the cluster, and see the temperature gauge is buried in the red. Wait until it cools off and start it, the temperature drops back down to 215 and I am on my way. 2nd, same but this time when I start it it does not read "Check gauges" and the temperature needle is just before the redline maybe 250f and I start it and watch the needle quickly drop to 215f and I am on my way. As long as the engine is on, it doesn't overheat. (Pre tuning) The 4.56 gears barely made any improvement or change at all. RPMs are at 3200 max when overdrive is off and going 65 on flat highway. With overdrive on it is around 2,200RPMs and very sluggish, have to floor it to maintain speed at the slightest uphill grade or climb. (Post tuning) no more sluggishness. Operating awesome.
I am going to check that my mechanic did mix my coolant properly tomorrow. I also have an appt scheduled with a different mechanic next Tuesday. Just to get a different pair of eyes on it.
