there were a few different tracks on that thread. i followed one of them - the one by a member from the Philippines who installed a "tropical duty" viscous fan clutch to solve his overheating problems. i am curious as to what our resident expert's opinions are on this. it simply locks at a lower temp than the stock one. i've found one at an online parts specialist and was quoted $159. with the kinds of summers we are experiencing here in the east coast, i think that this mod is practical since it operates the same as stock otherwise. it may even negate the need for the resistor mod which i am dependent on in my car these days.
