Engine temp

Just install an on3 turbo on my 86Gt. Engines running at 205degrees. It that high or normal. I have a 3core radiator twin electric fans and a 7qt oil pan. Think of adding a oil cooler not sure if it we help. Any suggestion would greatly be appreciated. Steve

That's about where mine is running now that summer has hit. Mine never moved off 180 before the turbo install. I have an aluminum radiator with twin Contour fans, FWIW.
