keeps overheating

ok i am so confused right now i dont know what to do. my car is still running hot and i have a 160degree thermostat, new temp sensor and just replaced my water pump and refilled system the way it suppose to be done. i dont know if it is trapped air or what? the only other thing is maybe it is my radiator is ****ting the bed or my fan is not cooling it enough cause a bought a 16 inch fan and hooked it up to a switch. does anyone know the cfm on the stock electric fan. mine says it does 2700cfm.

You better put your stock fan back on there Chief. Take my advice, and put your stocker back on there. Chris

You didnt mix orange and green coolant did you?

Some supercharged cars blow.......Others just pick up and move.
