fan delete question
ok, so im thinking what would be the pros and cons of running the fan delete kit, but keeping the clutch fan still on...

Can't see any pro's, cons - perhaps slightly worse fuel milage with the overcooling.
2 draws instead of one, not only would the clutch fan be working so would the alternator with the draw of the aux fan @ the same time.
A 323 I know claims slightly better hyway milage with the clutch fan removed despite the lower operating temp, which he can't notice heat wise even with the cold spell we had a little over a week ago.

I'd just remove the fan, you'll have a lot more clearance in front of the engine, e36's are known for their exploding fans, etc, etc
