when you convert C to F its 1.8 degrees F per each degree C----so 90*C is 180*F

More info is needed, is your fan a pull through or a push through, are you running a shroud, any idea what CFM the fan is, 16 inch fans have different flow rates, whose manufacture. Does the temp go down once you start moving? Are you running an under drive pulley on the water pump? If you are not running a shroud that would be the first place I would start.

180-190 degrees with a 180 degree thermostat is pretty normal for highway driving, expect it to spike in stop and go traffic.
Two ways to go
https://www.flex-a-lite.com/electric...ontroller.html
or

The two speed electric fan from the 1994 to 1998 Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable with the 3.8L engine, don't laugh, It's a 16" diameter fan on low speed 2000 CFM, high speed 3500 CFM Does have a tendency to pull a lot of amps, but cools BB hotrods very well.

What I was looking for is if you have a fluidyne radiator and a FE what fan are you using successfully to keep the motor cool. I dont have room for a shroud
