Sorry if this is a late reply but i hope the following is of use.
On my 205 Mi16 the water temp guage comes to just over the halfway mark (with a 92degree stat) and the cooling fans kick in between the halfway and 3/4 markings
A lot of 205 Mi16 conversions suffer cooling bother as the radiator is often lowering to allow the inlet manifold to fit, and the coolant does'nt like going uphill.
The oil temp gauge does get quite high up the scale (especially if driven properly!), so i would'nt worry too much, but check the oil cooler is functioning correctly. Some people remove them to simplify the cooling system, but this is not a good idea.
I use two cooling fans, and highly recommend this.
