Fans are puller correct? Never use pusher. May need a shroud if they dont drop the temp nice and quick like they should. Also it's a good idea to get a real controller. Save's gas since they arent pulling power from the engine the whole time you're driving and its safer to just have them come on by temperature instead of you having to remember them every time.
160 is too cold for a sbc, its not efficiant. Need a 180.
