New engine

I just put a new engine in my 97 gt. Now it's running hot. Can anyone guess why? Thanks.

Is the thermostat installed upside down maybe?

Yes. They flow in one direction only.

Haha.
I don't know if it is physically possible to install one upside down in our cars, though, because I've never tried!

The cooling fans and the T-stat are the logical first things to check.
