factory O/S can only control the fans from 195*f and up,, if you have hp tuners you can upgrade to the 2.5 bar O/S and keep your MAF and have complete control of the cooling fans

with the stock O/S you can only control the fans above 195*f,, if you buy the hp tuners 2.5 bar O/S upgrade then you can have complete cooling fan control

Go to system<fans< fans desired% vs ECT.

There you just up the percentage per ECT to have the fans come on stronger sooner. I have my fans at 25 at 192, 50 at 196, 75 at 199, and 99 at 203 and up.

You shouldnt really need control below 192. My only beef is that in the effort to stay cooler I have a lot more fan noise.

actually, the fan temps start at 192*, not 195... and you can adjust the fans % power that they run at....

the stock t-stat is a 187*... so no need to adjust anything below the 192* or 196* fan temp anyway...

and going to a colder t-stat doesn't gain you anything either... you'll make more power with these cars when they run 200*-208/210* than if they're lower than 200*...

starting at 192*, I would set to 25%, 35%, 45%, 55%, 75%, 75%, then 90% for all the rest...
