My comments this tread were geared toards engine gooling improvements, i think that a bulk of them can be atributed to choking the oppening with the intercooler or messing with the duct or under tray.
My wa ic is a rare deal made to accommodate ps, ac and have low pressure drop air air volume and keep the car from overheating in traffic with the ac on or on track.
This setup achieved all the goals i had for it, but i doubt that anyone other than me would be interested in such a setup because of its complexity and heavier weight than an aa setup

Don't deprive Pat of his weight and complexity!!

Seriously, we all enjoy seeing quality work, especially if there is data to backup the results.

Pat and i must be long lost brothers LOL here is a temperature log from my first dyno session (not a real 30 min track session) on my early system evaluation, i will try to setup the tc's and logger on my next track day October 23 to get some oil temps as well.

I made a quick video yesterday where I compared the performance of a 10" Zirgo radiator fan, which appears to use the same motor and blades as many of the cheap ~$20 options, to an identically sized Spal fan. This information could be useful if your car isn't cooling as well as you'd like in traffic or after you come off track.


CN's: The Spal fan generated 33% more of a pressure differential across the core than the Zirgo fan. .28 in H2O vs. .2 in H2O.
