    Yup it only takes about 30 secs IIRC for my twin fans when they kick in to lower water temp from 90 back down to 85 which is when they turn off - that's with the car stood still!!

    Is there any way of wiring sequential fans? i.e. a single fan kicks in at 90deg. If the temps keep rising to 95 then the other kicks in. Not sur how this could be achieved though. This would keep the water at a more constant temp. Short of fitting an electric water pump kit, like from Davies Craig.

    Those electric water pumps sound like a good idea but would be too much work for me.

    Well, you can use the standard thermostat/fan control to make them kick in at 95C, but you would need another controller to kick it in at 90C. In an ideal world I'd have the first fan kick in at 85C (off at around 83C) and the second on at 90C (off at 85C). HKS used to make a fan controller unit but I think it's discontinued now. Going to have a look around now, theres got to be something that will do this properly!

    Found something!

    This gets wired into the original water temp sensor that feeds a signal to the ECU. You set it at exactly what temperature you want the fan to come in at and when you want to cut out - link to instruction manual. If you want them to come in seperately then buy 2 of these and set them at different temperatures. May have to try one soon

    Did you use the one I just posted above? If you bought it in America can you remember where you got it from? I can only find it in one place in the UK and they are 90 each delivered!! I'll post pics of the Apex fan shroud for you as soon as I get chance!

    I've been thinking about it and for the cost of 2 of those units above I could buy the HKS fan controller which allows you to control both fans independently, or both fans simultaneously at different speeds - both of which would be ideal. I've just called Apex Performance to see if they can get hold of them.

    The distributor is frsport.com, and it let's you control each fan independently of each other. I ve seen them cheap on Zilvia.net.
