I'm about to fit my temp control for my fans, the sensor will be epoxy'd to the end tank..

Is that the running temp or just when you have your fans comming on?

You want your engine hotter than than.

Factory operating temp is 92 degrees, but I put in an 88 degree thermostat from XF. Diameter is the same (54mm I think), and is couple degrees cooler. Great results for me with thermos.
