SP1 Cooling system mod

Pretty cool and really easy mod to help your cooling system maintain a cooler temperature. All it takes is replacing the radiator sensor with Nissan part number 21595-01A00 or SW524 at autozone for 27 bucks and is a dirrect swap, no modification required. It turns your fans on at 190 instead of 214 and maintains 185 degrees.

Only works for the SP1 though since the SP2 fans are controlled by the ECU not a thermo switch.

That's one of the things I wish they wouldn't have changed for the SP2

Hey gts, that's one of those little pearls of wisdom. Thanks, your timing couldn't have been any better, were going to hit 100 for a day or two here...
