Yep. I kept thinking it was mental, but it's noticeable.

As was responded in the thread you posted, they don't come on all ZHPs in general, just auto tranny cars.

I don't have temp problems.

Yes your right. Just the auto. And I don't have temp problems either. I was just wondering if anyone ever added a pusher fan on a manual. The cooler the better.

Not necessarily. An engine can run to cold, for example the m10 in my '75 2002 would never get up to operating temperature due to an extra large radiator and a thermostat that was stuck open. This is detrimental for the engine in a number of way, including keeping the oil to cold to where it never warms up to the correct viscosity.

Ok. I was just wondering what everyones opinion was or if anyone had done it. I just thought adding another fan in front of the radiator would push more air thru. More for city driving. Because of the low speeds. And where I live it's super hot. And humid.

Brady, does Royse City have emissions testing?

If not, let's euro code that DME.

How is euro tuning different from like a shark?

My city / state has no emissions or vehicle inspections of any kind
