We got real close to 100 the other day and the temp from my register was 40f with the blower on med. With the blower on high the temp is always a little warmer.

I'll let someone else chime in.

Depends, color and size of the car can make a difference as well as fan speed and if it's on max cooling or recirc (max is usually a recirc mode). A large black car not moving with outside air coming in may get as high as in the 60's. My van, white, when idling usually throws about 61 degrees, but the temperature will drop off significantly when cruising.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

That's a lot of air to cool.
