Turbo, of course. Engine type does not specify what degree, its just proven that vehicles run better at a steady operating temp of 180-190* NOT ABOVE. Even after speaking with a fluid dynamics tech on this, he agreed vehicles operate better at a lower temp than factory. Adding a turbo will raise it into the danger zone of 205+ when in boost and just by having another heat source.
Like I said, this isn't an old carbed V8. Newer cars are ment to run at normal operating temps which is usally around 195-210 depending on the car. Escort GT BP and BPT motors run at 210. So why do you need to run it so cold?

There is an oil cooler installed currently with a 190* thermostat in the cooler assembly. Since were using 10w 30, there will be no issues with the temp of either the engine coolant or oil temp abiding by fluid dynamics.
Are you talking about the factory oil cooler or did you add in a second one?

It's not the engine heat you need to worry about, it's the air fuel mix and exhaust gas tempature when you turbocharge. If you got that set up right then it will run the normal 210 all day with no problems. OBD who cares, I run Standalone Engine Management and run factory fan setting with no issues.
But whatever, it's your car do what you want.

If you really, really want a lower temp the just pull out the T-stat and ground out the wire going to the fan temp switch. Then the fan will be on all the time and the car will never warm up. If you had a real EMS then you could just program the fan to come on at any temp you wanted like me.

Wait a minute.... I just looked up the stinger and it can control the fan. Why don't you just wire it so you can program the fan on/off temp and forget this fan temp switch nonsense. All the factory fan wireing is pretty stand alone. It should just be a simple one wire hook up from the fan temp switch wire to a PWM output. Done! program fan on/off temp. You got stand alone EMS dammit, hook it up right.
