Re: Radiator Fan Question
I also have a Flex-a-lite Black Magic Extreme FLX-180. I thought it would cure the problem with the motor running hot, but it turns out to be no better than the Perma-Cool 16" fan (2950 CFM no shround) that I had prior. I'm running a procharger with an intercooler and the intercooler. The intercooler is mounted in front of the radiator and blocks the radiator. I think the air that passes past the intercooler is hot and posssibly making the radiator hot. I thought if I could pull more air through the radiator that it might help. My radiator is an aluminum 2 core (1 inch cores) with a width of 22.5" and a height of 18.5" (width and height of the fins). After about 15 minutes of intown driving the engine temp will be up to 225-230 degrees. On the track or highway it is around 200- 205 degrees. Prior to adding the procharger the motor ran at a steady 190 degrees all the time. What do ya think?
