ok guys i took the car to my "tuner" and it was the same, he said it was gonna over heat and what not, im done with this guy. i did a datalog right know and the coolant temp didnt went above 216 and this was boosting and i even run the car really fast, i raised the boost to 9 ish and the afrs read 10.0 so it was richerthan that, my temp needle it was the middle (like always) the only thing is that out side is 38 degrees so its cold i will do some datalogs tomorrow during the day he said it went almost 220 at idle but not even. i Think his temp gizmo is broken

I've hit 220 before and I want to say I've even hit 230 before (n/a unwrapped header and SRI in TX heat). That was on my Auto meter gauge and using the Xcal, then the fans kicked on. As long has your fans are kicking in everything should be fine . Of course I live in TX and it's hot down here. If everything is checking out with your car then I would find another tuner. Though it's good that they want to play it safe, but some cars run hotter than others, it's not like it's puking coolant everywhere.
