With the stock 2 row radiator and fan, my car would hit 210 on a hot day both in traffic and at higher speeds. I upgraded to the 3 row radiator and Delta's fan shroud with the stock yellow fan, that fixed the low speed in traffic concerns completely. The highway speed problem, not so much (although it did help somewhat). That is an airflow problem at higher speeds, I fixed it by making a (rather ugly) aluminum 'scoop' under the front of the car. Now the temp runs dead in the middle no matter what the ambient temp (in Charleston that can be anywhere from 20 to 100 deg F) and my IR thermometer says that's 180-185.
