As some of you may have gathered from another thread, I recently visited Gav where he tracked down the smell of antifreeze in the car to a slightly leaky radiator. I am booked in for the end of next week to get it fixed with him, so I need to decide what I am actually going to have done and get the bits ordered, hence this thread.
Some background, the car is a fairly standard, non aircon, mildly modified (but nothing excessive) S2. As you may know, I did have HGF a while back, so tend to be concerned out engine temperature, avidly watching the temperature gauge more than the speedo. I want the car to be bomb proof and while the clam in off I think I might as well do the job properly!!
Having looked on elisepart web site, I fancy the following:
Upgraded Aluminium Radiator
Twin SPAL Fans
So, this means I would have 1 fan running as standard (at 102) with a second that would cut in independently based on the water temperature (I was thinking setting approx 88-90degs). I have a water to oil cooler so my engine temp jumps from 84 straight to about 93 when at a junction. I am not expecting to get to the second fan very often!
Can you over-cool an engine?
So what are the thoughts of MLOC, is it too much??
