Default Additional engine cooling possible?

has anyone ever installed one of those little marine cooling fans in anything, it may help out with engine cooling at the track....I noticed at the track my car is running around 220 degrees, of course it cools down when i turn the AC on cause the fan starts blowing, but then again it was like 90 degrees that night. I may just get a fan override switch.......how hard is one of these to install?

Go to Radio Shaq, and buy a switch. Wire the cooling override yourself.

Or get an electric water pump to go along with the fan overrirde. That should cool it down nicely if the car isnt running... (say at the track)
