Welcome ! What kind of help do you need? If I can help you I will but your demand is very vague to say the least . I am quite sure there are many others here that will help you . What is your question or problem? Alex

what compression are you running?
back in the day I ran dirt with a 327 .060 over with 12:5:1 pistons and the heads cut .025
I always ran hot. 230-235. I used a 4 core Chrysler radiator with a 7 blade fan and tried every trick in the book until I went to race fuel. then I lost 20* of heat

Welcome to Team Camaro!

Did you change anything else? Larger tube headers = leaner mixture. Compression ratio? Combustion chamber shape/size/volume? Carb changes (mixture)? Timing?

Thinner cylinder walls, more compression, aluminum heads....all can/will add to the coolant temperatures.
