Kaushik best of luck buddy.

Taking the bypass at Chd is a great idea.

But I would suggest that if you have not been to Chd before do take a look at the city. It will be a nice experience

Remember the original fan is a "clutch type" works on a thermostat type mechanacal system!

Well this is def not the best fan to fit!

You get a thinner larger blade (imported so the A/c guys say) which does a fantastic job!

Is it a good idea to have an AIR SCOOP for better air flow resulting in lower heating??? Only issue is cutting the bonnet
I has an A/c system fitted in my king (did over 60K kms) - never ever had overheating issues once the extra fan was fitted.
The other reason - could be the 4 fogs blocking the air flow!

Anyway- all the best!

Nice to hear that , I'm sure you need some time to recover however some teaser pics can do the trick atleast for today.

Do paste the link of the thread that you start.
