That's on every AC-equipped car; it's to cool the freon compressor, and only on at certain times. I guess the rationale is that it's motor-driven 'cause the compressor might be overheated when the car is stopped in hot weather.brnjug said:.there is an electric fan pushing and a motor driven fan pulling
I'm re-thinking my previous disbelief.I'd read in a post on alt.autos.bmw where someone claims a mechanical fan and fan clutch can take up to 20HP (crank, I'm assuming) to power. Needless to say, I find this quite dubious.
Thats great.brnjug said:Good news,I think.
Talked to George Grubbs 3rd,a bit ago and they looked at this issue and some research 240Z magazine has done on a conversion with the 3.5 motor
He gave me the name and numbers for this SoCa guru on this mod and added that they have also been exploring a Griffith radiator(all aluminum and among the best) to replace thestock for improved cooling...reduces the need for the fans to come on as often..Bottom line there may be a solution ready or in progress.Lot easier to buy a kit than tinker out a solution!
Lastly,the blowers for 35/45 are still in the works.
I will call later today
Yeah- as it cools off, both power and gas mileage increase ('cause it takes less "pedal" for any given acceleration). Problem is, from October to April, our swill actually gets worse- they oxygenate it. The mileage and power would be even better if it weren't for that.bradical said:with this cool weather here in the northeast the past week, my car has been RIPPING!
Yeah, I have to admit it was fun squeelin' the rears in my G35S loaners.i took the G35 out last night to run to the store its almost embarassing how fast that thing is even compared to the FX45 :lol:
