I'm curious to know what temp the guys with 180 t-stats are having their fans come on.

The typical approach with a 180 degree t-stat is to have the tune change the e-fan set point to 196 degrees. That is what I've had on my car for many years and it has worked well.

You could check the IRCM. It controls fan function.

Stock calibration has the low speed fan coming on at 210, high speed at 220.

Chris, I've got my low speed fan coming on at 200, high at 210.
