What he said, yeah, if your fans turn on after warm up then its circulation the coolant. But ive seen that temp sensor be an issue for quite a few people on here. Because when people change parts and re fill coolant, they dont bleed properly right away and the sensor heats to iridically and then goves wrong readings. But also make sure you bleed properly, i.e subaru jacked up forward, rad filled first so it makes its way to the thermostat with no air bubbles, then the turbo resevour. Took me 4 times to bleed/burp my system properly : /

* Flushed the water lines on my turbo (TD04)
* Removed the shielding on one of the water hoses for the turbo, Its a generic piece I had but suspected it might have kinked the hose (might not have, but the turbo is coming off once I verify my cooling system is alright)

I Vacuum filled the system with water for testing and so far - no issues.

Thermostat is opening, bottom hose gets warm when appropriate.

If I don't have any water missing from the overflow - Its happy days!
Grats probably just had some debri snd ****, i will say i know it takes some time for the bottom to get coolor because of location and all of thermostat. And correct me if im wrong but i thought it was bad to run water through subarus, because of the engine composition and how the minerals will mess something up, that it being aluminum and all. But glad you got it fixed : D

Running a car on water for a week won't hurt anything. Doing it for weeks on end, not such a great idea due to the things you mentioned. Tap water (depending on where you are in the world) can have some stuff in it thats not great for cars. I just have filtered tank/rain water so its not too bad.

Once I confirm im not loosing coolant and overheating, I plan on pulling the TD04 off and putting on the VF52, filling with correct coolant and happy days.

Just gotta fix up a smoking issue and a bit of a stumble on idle and low rpm/load (thinking might be AVCS)
