I am going on a longer trip tomorrow. More than an hour in each direction. I'll get a good idea how long it takes to get really warm then.

This is why I suggested some warm up mods. I think you probably have similar summer temps to me. I have found I can block up both my cars quite a bit and not have them overheat. Your cooling fan probably doesn't come on till 95-96*C so you have some room. I have an upper grill block and a belly pan on the Rondo year round and run a partial lower below about 10-15*C. I'm running a full lower, partial upper, belly pan and reflective insulation on the Echo. I only run it in town but it has been fine to 30*C.
It's sure nice to be able to see what's happening with the car in real time, isn't it?
