I experienced for the first time the high temps that are attainable by our cars when left idleing or crawling along as I was for a given period of time. :eek2: So I was pondering which way I want to go to fix this "engineering flaw". Should I do the extra wiring & modules for the fan control that are offered by our vendors or buy a Predator programmer & change it with that? Unless I'm mistaken you can change the fan settings with the programmer right? If so, exactly what are those settings, 200,205? 200-205 I'm thinking is where I would like to be for the fan on/off. I would also change to a 180 t-stat to cool things off while driving at speed. I know a lot of you guys have made these changes & was courious to which way is the best to accomplish this. Also does anyone know what the settings are for the fan control wiring harness/modules sold by corvette garage among others?
Thanx. Chad

Just crank up the A/C and don't worry about it. With the AC on it will drop your temp 10-15*, because it kicks the secondary fans on.

I did not know that, probably because I live in Wash. st (RAIN) vs. Texas (HOT).Sounds like a lot cheaper way to go then buying a programmer.:idea:

Speak for yourself, Kemosabe. It's dry as hell over here on the east side of the state.

Fans

IMO the fan controller is not clean. Wires to route, a probe you stick in between the fins in your radiator. It's does not look right and I don't believe it preforms correctly because of the location probe and placement of the probe. I have my fans set to come on at 193F and turn off at 183F. I used Predator. You can do this using Predator, LS1 edit, HP Tuners; there may be more tuning packages available. My coolant run 183 to 190F. My oil temps run 199 to 215F.
