    I remember driving in really torrential rain up the M1, stopped at MK services and the electric fans came on and there was steam literally billowing from the nostrils as the water boiled off the hot radiator. When combined with an open air intake at the front, the airflow is more than adequate to cool the engine, without any further intervention from the fans. I once drove all the way to Newby Hall in North Yorkshire (530 miles), non-stop, without the fans coming on once!
    only Pythagoras can save me now!

    A very good point to consider when modifying the bonnet/hood with vents.
