Put a new fan clutch on, preferably a Kennedy engineering one that will kick on 20* sooner

New thermostats.

Keep the dexcool and change/fill it back up

While the radiator is out, change the little coolant hose between the fan pulley and coolant y pipe (gets missed a lot and you don’t want that blowing)

Between all that, you should see a decent drop in coolant temp assuming you are on stock tuning. If not, we gotta look other issues
Just start here, basics first.
