Try a new thermostat, and go 180 degrees if you can.

Also check to make sure the heater hoses are in the correct positions. If they are reversed the haeater output will be low too.

thermostat. make sure no holes in the radiator. hoses are clamped on tight. Dirty fluid. do a flush 180 degrees will open sooner. heater wont be as host as opposed to higher degree thermostat
