Unless you take out the AC.


Seriously though, I can't see a fan doing anything for the IC unless you travel at under 20mph all the time. Stick your hand out the window to see just how much volume and pressure is created by your vehicle traveling down the road.

What I find interesting and played with a bit on my old RX-7 is finding low and high pressure areas, and creating ducting to help "pull" more air though the IC.

I made a pan on the bottom of the top mount IC on the RX-7 to exit on top of the trans tunnel (low pressure area) as it took in air from just in front of the cowl. (High pressure area) My inlet temps went down a lot just from that.

I know that adding ducting to the IC's on the Z really seemed to help.

I guess the only benefit to having a fan constantly on the IC is at idle. I am in Arizona where it is hot as hell in the summer time, and sitting at a light can really raise the underhood temps. If you don't have the A/C condensor in , you could mount a "Pull" type fan there to help with temps at idle. Who would take A/C out though? Not me , for sure!
