Does anyone know when the thermo fans are supposed to kick in when you've got a VS manifold and a VT motor my one is not clicking till it gets to the fourth line to the red. It starts going down but I'm just a bit weary of it Is this ok?

it will be running the vs ecu so manifold doesn't matter , 3/4 on the temp gauge is normal for the vs.
check to see if the low speed fan is coming on then the hi speed. if its too hot for your liking get a decent tune they program the fans to come on early and keep the motor cool my car has a memcal and the hi speed fans come on at 96 degrees.

Never seen one go over 1/2 unless there are problems. They typically sit on 1/4 to 1/3.
