Down side is if you go the 180 rought you need to also add a tune to lower the low and high speed Raid fans , if this is done properly and a 180 added you shouldnt see over 198-208 depending on how your driving

Okay so for now should i get the 180 then latter get the tune also can a diag reader be able to re program the fan temps? Then second will the oe motocraft housing be ok to or cfm one?

If your replacing the housing go with the Contour swap. its a metal housing. not as fancy looking but metal non the less. and will cost you less than $100.
