Cylinder head temp

In normal day-to-day driving, what would be a "normal" cylinder head temp for the 2014 5.0?. The gauge in the gauge app does not show ranges, just actual temp.

Usually 205-208. Then minus 10 degrees for coolant temp. But out side temp could make it lower or higher. I've seen 203 during our mild winter here in GA and I've seen 210 at times during the heat.

IT should stay within 10-15* of coolant temp depending on whether you are driving or standing still. Mine stay in the 200-210 range while driving, sometimes goes a hair higher after multiple WOT pulls.

Mine is usually between 204-214, only goes over 210 if I am driving it pretty hard though.

Aren't the gauges set up so that the top (or middle) represents the reading under "normal" conditions? Just always assumed that... i probably need to check them more frequently...
