mimime: thanks, though I think the relative humidity in HK is much lower than in Singapore

jif: hmmm...that's an interesting solution. what value are u using for Zi100?

m2Cupcar: No, the fans seem to be perpetually running in heavy traffic.

I have no clue if that is possible. Pretty sure this question was just asked in the emanage forum though.

No. The EMU is compatible only with machines running ME, 2K, XP, or Veesta. It will not run under PalmOS or Windows CE.

You could use the EMUs internal logger and then dump to a laptop after the run. Doing so requires this device to trigger the logger: http://www.mohdparts.com/emanage/pho...s/DSC05808.JPG

Actually, I'm sure there's a way to do it with a simple switch, I've just been too lazy to figure it out...

Default my easy DIY coolant reroute

Insert a T between the thermostat and radiator, then cap off the mixing manifold. Note that my coolant system contains about 30 hose clamps.


Hmmm, as I post this I notice there is a mistake in my drawing. I'll have to do it again and upload it. Still, it is just a mixing manifold bypass. Be sure to check your water flow if you screw around with using this method to cool your turbo. All water to the TB and intake manifold has been blocked off.

easy change to make too
Hey there. What's the value you're using?

With your setup, you shouldn't be seeing 104 in traffic for long with those fans. I have one 16" spal that pulls 2500cfm and it takes about 30 seconds for it to pull the coolant temp down from 100c to 92c when stopped. That's with a big intercooler and a/c condenser in front of the rad, and a 30/70 water/coolant mix.

What are your oil temps doing when the coolant temp rise occurs? If they're not elevating dramatically, then pulling air through the cooler won't do much for the coolant temp. If you do need/want a fan, go for an ATV fan.

Have you tried running the heater "full on" while sitting in traffic to see what that does?

Are you sure the tstat is fully opening?

Hey there.
I don;t have an Oil temp gauge, should really be looking at getting one eh.
Thanks for the lead on ATV fans, seems like a good choice.

MY heater, or rather, a/c is usually full on this my kind of climate. In traffic jams, it usually makes the temperature rise pretty fast.

the piping and thermo housing will all be redone shortly by TurboTim(ShoreMotorsports), we got some trick setup planned.
Paul, not to hijack his thread but since I had to do this myself today after installing a PWR radiator and FCM Fan Shroud and since the weather in Singapore I suspect is similar to ours (hot climate); would it do any good in his case if he bypassed the hoses to heat the cockpit?.

One of those two hoses just broke as I was bringing the car back from the shop and I just bypassed both of them and closed the water circulating circuit as per your link but without modifying anything else.

Thanks,

Rafa

I am busy the next few weeks but hopefully I can give you guys some sort of update on my coolant reroute then.

Regarding that oil cooler thing I was working on, Racer Parts Wholesale is STILL sitting on my order waiting for the parts to arrive.
