G'Day guys, I have been having problems with my car not reaching full operating temperature.

Specs:
ED with full NL Electrical and Auto EL ECU
AU2 XR6 motor


I have replaced the whole cooling system including sensor and thermostat, car only gets up to 87 degrees.

I have done the resistor trick on the ECU to think its manual, thermofans are not coming on when its cold but both come on when it reaches 87 and sits on 82-85 on idle.

Car thinks its in neutral as it should aswell.

Is their possibly something that I have done wrong with the resistor trick

im running a 91 and mine sits around 87-89 around town. when you talk "hot", the ECU needs 72? or above to go closed loop
