just having a look at my fuses under the hood,
and found that the 20amp fuse for the main fan was blown
no over heating tho ?

that would hardly effect the performance would it?

couldn't be that simple!!!!

Doubt it... fan only cuts in when the engine starts to get too hot anyway. Fuse blowing might be another symptom though - not sure if anything else runs off that fuse.

im just thinking about when i got my rolling road test done if it was blown then would that make for a bad result, as i heard some one making a slight ref to it looks like it was too hot and the ecu would of retarded the power !!!

could be wrong tho

If the main fan isn't working, and your gauge is not showing as over-heating, then something else is wrong for sure. Shouldn't effict performance much though, as long as your engine doesn't pop.

I know we all want big numbers on the dyno but....

Last time I had mine on there they let it sit idling for 15 mins until it was fully heat soaked. OK you may not get the V high numbers but if it's tuned for the worst case scenario you can be reasonably confident that it will be a safe tune. Chasing the last degree of advance and the leanest a/f will make you feel good until
