so, where should my water temp stay while driving? ive got a 5 gal coolant capacity, with a 1/4 hole drilled in the 180* thermostat to "preheat" the system so it doesnt shock the heads as much. ive realized i cant pay attention to the gauge (aftermarket) enough to remember when to switch the fan on. so im gonna get one of the temp controlled switches. so what is a good temp for the fan to come on, and turn off? also, what should be considered the max temp that the motor should reach?

I wouldnt want mine going over around 210, on a stock sc I belive the high speed fan kicks on around 205-210, Id turn my fan on at like 180-190 though in your case.
