I know, just illustrates how well the rad works at speed.200° isn't hot. I've ran the Contour fans in 115 plus degrees weather with the A/C on in traffic. My coolant temps were 210° or there abouts. The factory sets the low speed fan to come on around 220° on a 94-95 gt.
I also run a 195° t-stat. It's a high flow Robert Shaw t-stat. I also run a high volume water pump. Your fan is just fine.
Everyone I know that has an aftermarket stock replacement radiator in an SN car has said it runs hotter than the stocker did.Yup...I do the same thing and have the fans come on earlier. You should be good to go in the summer with A/C. Even the factory SN fan doesn't cover the whole radiator core.
I'm actually experimenting with a stock replacement fan/radiator on my '94. I kept the high flow water pump and t-stat. I have a big intercooler out front of the condenser now so my theory is that the thinner stock radiator will allow more airflow. It's worked well without the A/C hooked up. Next summer will be the test. Also; I can put a shop rag across the front of the intercooler and the factory replacement fan will hold the rag in place. It surprised the heck out of me.
