So the FAL 110 is finally on and shrouded as well as I can, but the thing isn't all that great. I should have come across this thread:
before going ahead with all this, but oh well. I bought the parts a long time ago and they were sitting around, so I had to try and see for myself. Jeeps are built, not bought, right?
Anyways, I bought some adhesive rubber moulding to fill in all the gaps between shroud and radiator. There are pretty much no gaps in the shroud now.
First, I set the FAL to come on around 200 and the aux fan operating like stock. With stop and go driving, the temp gauge quickly goes to 220 and the aux fan kicks on. The temp then hovers around 220. With normal city driving, the temp gauge is around 210 or a little above. I did a whole bunch of mods at the same time (water pump, thermostat, tranny cooler), so it's hard to tell what's up, but my temps seemed lower with the stock fan. The weather got hot here (70's to 90's all of a sudden) while I was installing everything too, so go figure. I know the stock fan is better, but my goal was to try and hold the temp gauge at 210 through all conditions, so now I hooked up the aux fan to the FAL controller, so they come on together at a little under 210. I'll have to see how this works and post more later. If this setup sucks, I'm gonna go the way I should have gone in the beginning, triple fans.
Are there any cons to running both fans and not having an aux fan, besides stressing the electrical system?
