Hey, does that little Fan for your IC help any? I was thinking about doing something like that for when I am sitting in traffic ect. And did you just wire both electric fans together, or did you install your own Temp sensor and Relay?

Thanks!

The IC fan does help so my temp sensors tell me
I have digital thermometers for several items.
I have one in the air filter and one mounted in the throttle body just above the throttle butterfly, one for oil and one for coolant, and inside and out side temps.

Any how, my IC fan is wired to only blow during boost conditions.
It is controlled by a factory boost switch and a relay.
I have a SPDT switch to diable it or test it.
Leaving it disabled shows approx 20 deg temp diff (increase over the throttle plate) when on an extended boost run.

I guess you could wire it to keep the IC cooler all the time but my hood scoop does a pretty good job by itself.

(from it's blade size and RPM I'm guessing it's around 350 cfm - makes a lot of air move)
Hope this helps
