Yes it always reads 1/2 after 10 minuets of driving and the radiator fan starts to operate. But my friends car reads 1/4

You may just have a warmer thermostat fitted that all, or his may have had an extra bleed hole drilled, cooler is not always better, yours sounds correct his may be I little to low if anything.

No, the exhaust will be ok, the extra displacement of.3 litres is not wort worrying about at all.
