Mod: Radiator Clutch Fan* Delete
Estimated Savings: 12lbs rotational mass, 0.68mpg, or $23.53/year based on $4/gallon gas
Hp Gain: 0.2 constant, 1.0 during fan engage
Time Taken: 75 minutes (The clutch was quite stuck )
I'll get to fabbing up a mount and installing the electric fan tomorrow hopefully. I'm going to be using a 12v fan off of a 99 Volvo V70 XC, because I have it on hand
Also, don't let the engine get too hot or you may lose your internal combustion efficiency (as the internal temps go up, the ECM may pull timing).
Lastly, on your gearing/RPM's. Lower RPM's are not always the best. You need to find the RPM that is the max efficiency for your engine, usually between 1000 and 2000 RPM's. Sometimes you can loose MPG's from going too low.
