They are just so lean now. I have all but given up on roasting, and just use braising recipes which are delicious.

I forgot. I thought it was 165.

Not too much higher than that, or it will start to dry out and become tough.
I'm of the school, pork tenderloin or pork roast, needs to be cooked at a high heat and quickly. Sear in juices then bake at a fairly high temperature for a short amount of time. Use your thermometer to check for doneness.
