    Hi
    My fan on the meglio seems to push ??
    Is this the correct way I want it to pull really as I've done a few track days now and it seems to get hot after a few hot laps now and with the fan pushing even on a switch in the car I feel as if it's stalling the air if I'm driving there fore forcing air in and the fan pushing air out ...,it can't be right .


    What wires do I need to swap over . I can see a purple relay on the back of the fan is this the location I need to be at ? .

    Thanks Jaime

    I run the 250 Rad.It did not drop straight in. Initially, it looked like I would have to lose the AC, but some adjustment some spacers for the rad, solved the problem, so I keep the AC. For me, I use one of the original forge intercoolers,NOT the new ones.( I won't go into why.)It leaves plenty of room for the rad. I have seen quite a few conversions, where the intercooler almost covers the Rad. Not a good idea in my humble opinion.When I got mine, the Engine/Gearbox/Turbo, were all fine, just about everything else, was broken/not working.The only thing that would get me out of it, would be a GT2 RS,( I can dream, can't I?!.), or maybe, a Converted Twingo. I have spent a lot of money putting it right, and now its all done, boy o boy, its well worth it.

    It should pull air, from outside car, through rad. Mine was blowing air from engine compartment to the outside!.They tried everything, removing grills/groves in bonnet, nothing worked. I purchased it, found fan blowing wrong way round, overheating solved. There were probable another 100 problems to solve, but all is fixed now, so a brilliant all round car.
