So I have been looking at this TCP fan conversion. Has anyone done this an what can I expect to see out of this? It seems as though HP will increase and temp will drop but how exactly? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
By having a mechanical fan, some power that the engine produces is used up turning the fan, so if you remove it you gain back some power that was lost. I think most people say this is about 10hp gain. You then add the electric fan to keep the engine cool, obviously. The electric fan also usually cools better as it turns on and off exactly when it needs to based on a temperature reading from a sensor...
