Don't know for sure about the 450, but my 426 runs at around 160 f with a significant air flow. In the tight stuff where there isn't much flow it is pretty steady at around 190-220 f. Hope this helps.

What temps are you guys setting the warning lights at? I set yellow at 200 and red at 250. In the desert last weekend and we had to keep stopping for a rookie, the max temp recorded was 224. Should I back the red light setting down?

I set mine at 212 and 240 respectively.

Thanks for the reply! What prompted you to use 240 as the high setting?
