Hooray!
Scooby sir...any updates in the setup? hope you have not faced any over heating problems since then. looking forward to some pics of the setup. Will be really helpful.

Also has the AC cooling inside cabin been impacted due to the under-body location of the condenser?

Is there an electric fan between the under-body and condenser also?

My car is in Khandala, so next time I go there shall take snaps and post here.
In the meanwhile, I face a problem without the AC on, as the electric fan outside the front radiator only comes on with the AC causing overheating on expressway hill climb. So need to change the circuit.

That would be great!

But the problem you are facing now is only because you dont have the mechanical fan. Right? please correct me if i am wrong.

Under normal circumstances the mechanical fan would prevent the overheating when the AC is off.

Yes I guess will revert to the mechanical fan up front. Lesser electronics and failure scope.

Well just changing the circuit should do the trick easily in that case. Not sure if reverting to the mechanical setup is worth the money.

Also do you have an additional electric fan between the under body and the condenser?

So how does the mechanical fan work? Depend on wind pressure to rotate?

It depends on the engine rpm, its connected with a pulley and a belt.
