Even at highway speeds? On the driveway, I would expect those temps. That's where the cooling fans are made to come on. Just because the thermo opened at 180 instead of 210, doesn't mean it won't get that hot without cooling.

Thumbs up

Temps are good to go. Took about 30 mins of running engine...releasing air out of rad cap. Wife about lost her mind because we had to be somewhere. Thanks to all for the help. Love having forums.

Glad you got it fixed, if u haven't already, I'd get a tuner to adjust the fan settings to keep ur engine temps down.
