    I have a 2011 Silverado 1500 that has an 8' Hiniker on the front of it. I bought a Diablo Predator a few months back to turn off the terrible AFM. Playing around with the machine I noticed I can raise the fan speeds at certain temps. Just wondering if anyone has ever played around with theres. More airflow couldnt hurt, not like I had any overheating problems last year.

    I had 2 fans on my old 454. I did have some overheating issues problem was when the grill got iced over and no airflow got into it. Had to stop and chip it off, I then played with reversing the fan rotation, but then it didn't cool as well, it just melted the ice enough

    I havent had a problem with the grill iceing up or overheating, but just thought of raising the fan speeds a little on the low end just to get airflow started a little sooner. I figured it couldnt hurt for the transmission and engine temps.
