fan relay horsepower gains on a 98 gt

If i ran my fan to a toggleswitch, how many horses would i pick up from cutting out some of the parasidic drain?

Very little to none plus you run the chance of overheating you engine

You won't get any gain at all...all it does is mess your car up and will probably cause over heating....plus it's an electric fan...you don't have any loss of power because of it

+1

Only benefit I could see by this is when you are in line at the drag strip.

Alternative would be to unplug your A/C compressor. Then you'd just turn on the A/C in your car. This automatically turns on the electric fan.

I wouldn't want to run my car down a drag strip without having my fan working that's for sure

Also to add on to this, just turn your a/c off and don't run it when you are going down the drag strip. The a/c motor running will rob you off about 3 horses

Should be ok if you disconnect the A/C compressor under the hood. Unless there is something else running inside (other than the blower).

...Might be able to remove a fuse to get the job done. You'd want to check to see if there is anything else you need that shares that fused circuit.

Hell if he wants to not run his fan just unplug the fan.

Just saying there's a way to force the fan on w/o modifying the circuit, like adding a toggle switch

Yeah, thats true, i just recently got done fixing my car because of that. Had to buy a whole new fan assembly because the owner before me messed it all up, thinking it would help with well horsepower. I can tell you I didn't notice a difference at all from when it was like that and when it's how it is suppose
To be

Electric fans really do not cause parasitic drains on the engine if it was a clutch fan mounted to the engine it would be a different story

On my old car I hooked up my fans to a toggle they still came on automatically but I could turn them on in the staging lanes at the drag strip
