:devious No pun intended eh? :laugh

Fan will come on in the 216/218 range

On your 97 though, you need to check if the temp fix has been done: on that first year model the temp sensor was in the radiator and gives a false indication of the actual temperature. That can cause real running problems due to which map the ECM selects.
Check out this fix in the frequent mods forum
Must-do fix on a '97.
If it's running in the 185-195 range while at speed, the fix may already have been done. Temp will always climb when idling or in stop n go traffic however
