Even though you said the front, for some reason I just kept looking in behind. I changed the oil, started the car for about 5 minutes, then changed the oil again. Should I be fine or should I change the oil again?

If it was me, I'd change it in 500 miles and then give yourself a pat on the back.

Ok one last issue ( I hope). Before I did this the car would stay at 88 degrees celcius, when I was driving or just sitting there idling. Now when the car is idling it is up to 105 and when driving comes back down around 92. It has a 180 tstat.

Did you bleed the air from the system using the bleeder on top of the thrmostat housing?

Also, check out this Tech Info article. It does a great job of explaining how to properly top off the cooling system without getting air lodged....
