Default Did some work to the white bonneville

I did a fan override to keep the temps down at the track. I was surprised on how easy it really was. Seems to be working pretty good, i let it sit and idle and the temps didnt even touch 200. It is only about 80 outside today and not the mid 90'* it has been but i think it may help some. I think that the lower temps will reflect in my times at the track. Also while i was watching the fans to make sure the fans worked i noticed a hissing noise. So i looked around and noticed both vaccum lins going to the throttle body are crackled and were hissing and i could feel air coming from them. I fixed them temporarly (just black electrical tape). I am going to get a new elbow and T and fix them permentantly. I wonder if that affected my times at the track? It atleast explains the bouncing idle i couldnt figure out.

That is the link to the topic in which you told me how to do it.

And Don, i installed a toggle switch, works great. I grounded it to a screw next to the pcm that is the ground for the under dash light.

I fixed the vaccum leaks, and throw a set of belden premium wires on it. I am thinking about recharging the K&N before i go to the track, and maybe a few other little things but i can not think of anything to do that i do not normally do, any ideas lol. I am hoping to hit the track friday night and get this fricken thing into the 15'*.
