Ya wired in a fan switch friday.....They work great when the cars not running...but sooon as the ignition is on the fans turn off....So I need to splice a different wire
you are on the right track now.
Think about it, the reason your car heats up in traffic is because there is no air moving through the radiator. The fans come on stock at 220* I believe, but if you get that fan switch up right, it will work whenever you want it to. Just make sure that you dont leave it on when you shut off the car.
Drilling a tstat will make a noticible difference. I ran one for awhile and all I noticed was that the car took longer to warm up, which is hard on the car. When you consider how large the holes are, consider how much coolant is flowing anyway, and the difference between the fully open tstat and the fully closed tstat. It wont be that much.
Do you understand what I am trying to tell you?
