    fmic question

    hi all i bought a fmic from leegsi's group buy, ive sorted a bloke to do my alloy pipe work ,my zaffy gsi has slightly more room behind the bumper than some astras, but the air con fan is taking up way to much room, the bloke doing the work has suggested to buy a slim line fan,
    my only question is will changing the fan cause any problems? have heard some pace intercooler kit sometimes put up a coolant warning light up on the dash?!

    think these come with a new fan!
    (please correct me if im wrong)

    any help would be great

    Get him to move the rad back.

    You can put the front hole in the back bolt hole of the bottom bracket.

    If that still not enough room you can take the cover off the fan or swing the fan round 90 degrees.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    danny i will ask him, costing me between 75-150 depending how long it takes him. hes using some of my pipes allready fitted ie. promotasport hard boost pie and my roosemotorsport turbo-intercooler hose.

    as for moving the rad back think i would prefere to change the fan just need to make sure it wont mess things up.
