Usually carb'd engines as a general rule make more power at lower temps, but there are plenty of factors that can determine that outcome. It really depends on what the use of the car is and what climates it will be run in. I haven't run anything wamrer than 160 degree thermo in my Nova since I bought it in 1997, and she still sees street time.
