Is the thermostat OEM? Does it get up to temp from cold normally? the thermostat is the only thing that will restrict flow to prevent the coolant temperature from dropping too low.

It is a slow mechanical item though, so sudden high RPMS or low load high RPM situations can make most gauges drop before the thermostat closes and restricts flow

OEM thermostat(78C). Directly from the dealership.
As for warming up normally, it does I guess. The upper hose gets hot as well as the lower hose.

I asked because if its not returning closed correctly it will take a much longer time to warm, and will cause the temp gauge to drop if it doesn't close up when temps drop

I just had this same problem. I replaced the ECT sensor and that fixed the problem.
