Like it states.....When i run my car harder then normal it gets really really hott and the fan never kicks on or it kicks on for like 2 secs then off i just to make a switch or something so when i am not running it i can leave the fan on....also when i go to the track help cool my engine down faster! so i mean its got to pluses if you can!

I don't see why it would be. All your doing is bypassing the sensor with a switch, so that the fans stay on (when the switch is on).

Yeah i mean when i thought of doing it i was running my car against a Civic EX and it was a fair race (i won!!!!! go camry...on the track**) When i poped my hood to let it cool off it was so hott and my fans did come on so its an awesome mod if you race a lot!!

I think I'm just going to buy the adjustable fan switch from flex-a-lite, although the mod seems like a cheap way to get the same effect.

I guess big projects start small. Initially I changed the the thermostat to replace a potentially bad one, so I went with a low-temp one (170f), now I'm considering getting an adjustable fan switch for my radiator fans to keep it even colder. I might have longer warm-ups, but I'm sure the extra cooling under the hood should help things out quite a bit.

Now I'm even considering getting a faster, lower-draw radiator fan, I've heard you can gain some power from them. :)

Well cooling is one of the bigger projexts that people over look....I mean with speed you also need cooling....I would get a Flex-A-Lite they are sweet bigger fans and stuff on them....
