Prospective SS/SC owner

Hello guys. New here, not new to forums. I'm looking to get into the ss/sc game. I just test drove one today, very fun little car. Has the recaro and lsd (g85?) option. My question is I was lurking on here and read some thing about the coolant temp and heat exchangers. A better heat exchanger would be one of my first mods however I was monitoring the coolant temp while driving and obviously it was a test drive so I was going pretty quickly and getting into boost and the coolant temp hit 184 degrees. Is that too high? It also came with a fujita cai, not the brand I would have gone with but either way I love the blower whine. Thank you for any help, it is very much appreciated.

That coolant temperature is normal....

Mine startup sits at 90 degrees and then at max sees 196.

Also I see a lot about monitoring iat2 temps. How do you guys monitor them? I want to keep the car as safe as possible so I'm looking into a heat exchanger but what about this dual pass I keep reading about? I want to keep it cool but don't plan on running meth.
