Must get rid of CF!

So what ever happened to your tire temps and the extra camber?

FYI, I just installed an electric fan and deleted the aux and mechanical fan. I also blew out my oil cooler and car didn't run in the red this past weekend. A massive improvement despite 70+ degree temps. I could definitely tell the car was pulling timing mid way through a session before. I was surprised how much crap came out. I sprayed brake cleaner into the fins and used compressed air to blow it all out. Wear a face shield.

You save about 20 lbs by using a SPAL fan. Its super easy...just remove and wire the controller on the OE aux fan to the SPAL fan. I used the zip ties that BW sells. They held up fine. The only downer is you need to remove the radiator to install them AND you'll need to reinstall the radiator from the bottom of the car. But its a pretty easy install.
