I installed a 180 degree t-stat and did a antifreeze flush and I am still running at the same temp?? When I am driving at 70 MPH my needle drops lower than it was before the 180 t-stat, but when I am just idleing it is exactly the same as before. My fan turns on so I don't know what the hell is going on. Could my temp needle just be off a bit, but it drops lower than before when I am driving so......

you'll need to lower the temp. the fans come on with a tuner/tune to make a low temp thermostat worth it.

Ya your fans kick on at 190 or 194 something like that. So you wont go below that at idle and low speeds.
