Cobraites,

I've had my rad recored from single to 3 cores and while it was being done I got the fella to fit a fan temp switch socket, dilema now what is the optimum Fan Switch temperature band i.e. I have a TVR Griffith V8 95-87 Degrees C, is this OK ?

Cheers

You need to run the larger bore RV8's as cool as possible if you want to avoid the dropped liner and cracked block problem.

I'd run a 74 degree thermostat and a fan switch that is maybe 10 degrees hotter. (74 might be standard for the TVR).

Jim of JRV8 or V8tuner can supply you the stat and Burton Racing do varrious fan switches that will fit a sierra rad, you'll need to find out the thread size for your rad.
