okay another update, while driving with ac on the fans turn on, but the temp still gets to 215 and pressure relief opens. could the tstat not be opening? i also noticed the uppr rad hose swells more than usual do to the increased pressure, could this also be a sign of the tstat?

At 215 everything should still be normal. Replace your stat, stat...............
