well low comes on a little over 200... then high speed (the only one that does anything) comes on at like 220 something...


so yes, a High Speed fan over ride would help heat and a 180* stat is good also.
im not sure on how to do the high speed fan over ride on your car but i bet its not much diffrent then a bonnie.

Just find the ground Turn on wire that goes to the high speed fan relay under the hood and put a switch to it to ground it when ever you want...

You're not a pain in the butt yet.


You will be after you start modding the car though.

Click on the Links link at the top of the page. There'* a very good reason or 5 that seriesoneperformance isn't listed there, and is no longer a recognized vendor here.


Before jumping into porting heads and such, I'd suggest alot more research and a good look at your budget, potential downtime for modding, etc.

You can get a cam from crowcams in australia, or have a custom grind done by CC or Crane. I suggest a north-american custom grind.

Rockers can be purchased from ZZP.
