Normal, unless its been tuned.

Normal operating temp on the gauge will show as a needles width or 2 under the half mark. Mine sat solidly in that position until it got tuned with a different thermostat.

It's whatever thermostat temp the tuner recommends. They will tune the car with the temperature in mind.

So you will have to ask them. But not all tuners change the thermostat though.

I have an 82 degree thermostat in mine and apparently you can go cooler to a 72 degree unit.
