  1. Merry xmas ya bunch of ohmos. See yous next decadaminium.
  2. Nice, you'll be able to hear me snoring too then. My missus will love it.
  3. Bust out the multimeter and work your way back man. Check for earth and power seperately and then switch to ohms and check the wiring.
  4. I've got 2 aftermarket switches in my car. It's for the reversing camera.
  5. Imagine how messy it would be eating that! I'd need a knife and fork 😁
  6. Ok fair enough. He has been recommended by Roland over at Pcmtec in some of their forum posts. I haven't had anything to do with him but that was why I made my comment.
  7. The fans wont come one sooner unless you make them but fair enough. The reason I'm asking for explanation is not because of a lack of understanding on my part. It's because a lot of people recommend a tune for any minor change and in many cases isn't "needed" but rather could be utilized whether or not the car is modified. In this specific case a tune isn't "needed" but it could be utilized. For better or worse semantics matter more online, especially hard statements such as "you need to xxx".
  8. Boys you've both made statements without any reason as to why these changes should happen.
  9. Untuned it won't matter and I have a strong feeling even forcing it to run cooler with the tune fixed up, it still wont make a difference unless taking it around a circuit. Choosing which one to use is a whole lot of meh imo.
  10. The stock value for the low speeds fans to switch on is 212f and will switch off at 205f. No need for adjusting the fan in the tune for a thermostat change, but you might want to do that with a stock thermostat anyway to keep the low speed fans on all the time during the warmer months. The spark correction for coolant is zero at 180f and 200f but will interpolate below or above these temp numbers from the 150f and 220f points. There is a chance that timing will be affected slightly if a 180f thermostat sits a couple of degrees cooler than 180f. This is where you might want to adjust the tune to ensure the timing cant change. Really doesn't matter much which thermostat you use tunewise, and wouldn't be worth paying to get these parameters changed. The cooler one will give you a bit more time at WOT before it inevitably overheats. Is there any benefit from running an alloy head at 195 vs 180 to dissipate heat from the engine quicker? That's another debate I think. Edit: The motor wont get any cooler than the low speed fan off point regardless of which thermostat is installed, so there is no point getting a cooler thermostat unless you did change the fans to force it colder.
