What parts have been replaced on the cooling system? Was this vehicle imported and if so from where?

I replaced the radiator (Behr) and the water pump and electric fans and all pipes. This car is imported from Quatar, but it written on it 'gulf specifications'.

Okay, is the cooling fan coming on when the vehicle hits operating temp? Since the vehicle is Gulf specs it should be able to handle the Kuwait heat.
