Should be in the 180 at the crank range I'd expect. That CR isn't too far from what the Competition Parts kits were running. Also would help to now if the bore or stroke were changed.

It should be closed on AC and with the temp control at full cold. Makes a big difference on mine if it is stuck open during the summer, around 10-15* at the vents when cruising.
