For economy and best power you want as close to a constant 200F as you can get.
Sounds like you used aftermarket T-stats that are notorious for not working in these engines.

AC Delco ONLY.

My 6.2/6.5 hybrid motor runs around the same temp. I have never even looked at my t-stats the entire I've had my truck. The only time mine runs warmer than that is when I'm towing. I have never gotten double digits in fuel economy. I get between 4-8 MPG. I will definitely change my t-stats when I rebuild it next month.
