Running close to hot

I installed the twin turbo kit from hellion earlier this year with no issuses. The kit is great, and make great power. But now in the summer months, im finding that the car is getting up there in temp, going well above normal, sometime close to 3/4 in the normal temp range. Has anybody else ran into this issue? 8m thinking about getting a well vented hood to see if that helps. But it only seems to be when its 90 plus degrees out.

Does your temp gauge have numbers? If it does, what number (or approximate) does it show? The standard operating temp should be between 200-220*. The "high temp" mark on your gauge might only be around 260* (and 3/4 might only be 240*). I'd get an infrared thermometer and see just what the temp is in the hoses/radiator/block.

No numbers on the guage. May have to run a tuner and computer to get coolant temps. Was just concerned it was so hot, even from just normal driving. But only happens when its 90 plus degrees

You should have cylinder head temperature in your gauge cluster. I have a procharger intercooler and it did the same. I installed a aluminum aftermarket radiator and lower thermostat

Why would you think it's an '08 it's posted in 2015 and up, that's poor advice

From his profile.
Just because you don’t agree with someone’s advice doesn’t make it poor advice.

My old mustang was an 08, new one is a 2017. It turns out it was blown fuse for the lower fan, but thanks for the advice.
