      I apologize if I'm coming off like a dick. I'm not questioning Brian's knowledge of VR6 engines, he clearly knows his stuff. But when the Bentley manual tells me the correct way to test this all is...
    2. Dude, what do you think happens when the temp...

      Dude, what do you think happens when the temp sensor hits that certain temperature? The circuit closes, which is exactly what happens when you jump the pins so what does driving it up to temp have...

      I thought that too but the section in the Bentley that talks about how the system work mentions they are all part of the system (pump, fan, module).

      Full disclosure, I've never had a working aux...

      I thought the after-run system consists of the pump and the fan? The pump does run whenever the ignition is on and is supposed to run for 10 minutes when switched off but it does not...I just don't...

      Yellow/black wire w/ yellow plug is connected to D3. Its switched power with ignition via load reduction relay. I understand the motor needs to be at a certain temp for the fan and pump to come on...
    6. After-run Fan/pump control with ignition off?

      I haven't posted here in ages but I've recently resurrected my A2 VR6 (97 VR6 engine and wiring) that I built about 10 years ago (was sitting for a while!). I'm almost done, just buttoning up some...

      If that is true, than not only will he be the highest paid athlete...but also one of the smartest since he doesn't have a manager and doesn't have to pay 20% of that money to anyone for a commission...

      Funny, that pic is the corner of 89th St and Central Park West...a half block from where I live. He wasn't there just to look at the park...theres was a Democratic fundraiser he ws attending on 90th...

      This actually IS a Tilke circuit. I do agree, the setting was fantastic and the track layout is awesome.

      I haven't watched a race live in about 5 years...started watching BBC the end of the 2009 season then switched to Sky when they got started with their coverage which is really great. Its actually...

      Yeah, I get that...thats to limit the engines themselves to around 600 hp...part of the regs (love it or hate it). I meant I don't even think all of the teams are cranking the engines up to full...

      Those engines in the 80s were absolute monsters, less displacement than these making close to 1400 HP in qualifying trim, I'd imagine that has something to do with it. Hardly comparable to these...

      What exactly do you think is attached to the exhaust other than a large turbo charger? Thermal energy recovery on the engines is harvested from a shaft connected to the turbine wheel and kinetic...

      Your exactly right about that point. I'm not a financial person by any stretch which is why I look to financial advisors and fund managers and 401(k) planners. The fact that these people aren't...

      This is what they have been saying since day one...they had written permission from the FIA. The blame should be placed on the FIA for once again, being inconsistant in their rulings. :confused:
