My 2016 Base Coupe water temperature runs between 165 and 170 so the start of the variable yellow line on the tach is usually 4800 to 5200 rpm. Is there any problem created in the engine due to operating temperature being continually below 180 degrees?

That seems low. RedHot has consistently run at 220 since new (but most of that is driving here in the desert, although looking back at the images taken of the dash as I drove her back from NCM before and after break-in, that approximately 1900 mile run, she read the same water temp at 220).
