|steve05ram360||whould it make a difference if you split theload between 2 pumps? PS & brakes|

|Gator1||I couldn't find a pump that was big enough. I got confused on the flow rates and thought it was possible and almost bought one, but flow rates were only 1/3 of what's needed.|

|Gator1||Electric PS, or WP?|

|steve05ram360||whats the status of your electric PS pump swap?|

|steve05ram360||Grab some cardboard and block the front, drop it down between the CAC and the AC condenser to play with. Mine setup nearly fully covered with just a 10x12 opening in front of the condenser. On the grades here, which is a 300~400' climb temps will start climbing. Usually at the top it stops and either holds or starts to drop again. All that with the fans off. I would be OK with just one of the fans kicking on to control temps as needed. 2 seems way overkill at this point, one fan on low draws 2800 cfm @14A on that test chamber I did so ~5600 combined.|

|Gator1||no fans at all on hwy it's 50 deg here.|

Are your radiator fans running all the time or in auto mode?
I'm gonna pull one of my fan control wires and run on 1 fan for a bit.

|Gator1||I still have the stat in, it's just gutted. I need to block off more of the Radiator apparently, even with the WP idling it's pulling too much heat out.|

What about using a restrictor plate instead of having the t-stat out entirely? This may resolve some of the warmup issues you mentioned else where. Was reading on a forum where the guy used a 3/4" opening and still ran too cold, dropped down to 1/2" and found some success but had other issues pop up.
Food for thought...
I have a very small bleed hole in my t-stat, when it was larger on a previous stat it took forever for it to get up to temp. Once it did, the temp was oscillating less. On a side note, I have learned one thing with the current setup, the fans can pull a lot of heat quickly out of the cooling system. I need to get on a good long grade and see how it does under load for a longer period.

Derale has patented this technology for use on it's radiator/oil cooler fans already.
It's also interesting to note that auto manufacturers actually plan the needed HP somewhat around the needs that it's alternator, pump, and cooling fans will place on it.
