Just make sure that you replace ALL of the coolant lines and hoses. Torque the head down correctly and I would suggest a 180 degree thermostat although I am sure you can give 15 degrees hotter or colder of that. Just making sure that no coolant lines will blow is probably the main thing.

stock is 190* go with that. stock fan clutch. big alum rad will cool better than stock.

stock there is nothing wrong with the cooling system. if you motor is running healthy there should be no reason for it to overheat.

make sure the engine isnt caked in oil or anything like that it could act as a blanket and keep the heat in

Ceramic coat the manifold and downpipe and get a blanket for the hotside of the turbo.
This will really drop under hood temps
