Gauge reads 200 most of the time, but scan tool says about 190 when I bother to look

Maybe you have too much coolant and not enough water?
I was using that new prestone with the clear look inside until you poor it out and its green. its for the Dex-Cool radiators. I dont remember what it said on the cover but i was thinking it was already mixed.

Using the stock thermostat that was in the car when I bought it.

I plan to switch it with a new 180. How much does it cost to have the pcm reprogrammed for the fans to kick on at 180?

180ish. The fans do a good job of keeping it low.

Mine ran like 210 ish before I got my new thermostat. Contrary to what everyone said, when I replaced it I got the 195 T-Stat again. Now I run 190 ish on the gauge. But when I sit idling for awhile, then it creeps up to about 225 to 230. Then the fans kick in and it drops a bit.
