    Question concerning fan on GT3 decklid.

    Need some help. I recently had the carbon fiber wing with deck lid placed on my 997 GT3, however, the fan was non functional and they couldn't get it to fit exactly. So I had the tuner put back my original wing. Happy to say everything is working well now. The tuner mentioned to me that my GT3 did not need a fan. He even said that some people who track do not use the fan and have it disconnected. He says I don't need it. This seems odd to me. My question is do you need the fan on the car? I figure this is a high performance car and would assume you would need it to keep it performing optimally. Thanks for your help.

    Re: Question concerning fan on GT3 decklid.

    Yes you need the fan. Your tuner is just being lazy and wanted to skip a step. This is especially important when the car is turned off after a high performance run, the fan remains on to cool the car down even after it is off.

    Re: Question concerning fan on GT3 decklid.

    does the fan turn on all the time automatically when car switched on ? and goes on when off if temperatures are high ?

    The fan is on anytime the engine is on. I never had any check light signals or temperature issues. But I didn't feel good about driving without a fan.

    I don't think it's for decoration. That'd be all the excuse P would need if you had an engine failure and they were looking to deny the warranty.

    The fan is an absolute necessity. It shocks me to learn that a "tuner" would advise otherwise. You're dealing with someone who's not reputable.

    The fan is always on when the car is on, and when it is off it intermittently goes on and off if the engine is too hot after a hard drive.

    Which "Tuner" are we to avoid?

    Re: Question concerning fan on GT3 decklid.

    I don't want to mention names. You don't have to worry your in the Pacific NW. Since then they have tried to remedy the situation by giving me discounts on other services.. Still haven't gotten my money back or have been offered to get it back.

    Re: Question concerning fan on GT3 decklid.

    Were you at least able to get them to reconnect the fan and working again?

    Re: Question concerning fan on GT3 decklid.

    All quite disconcerting to say the least. Reminds me when I was talking to some Bentley techs at my Aston dealership.

    In regard to the Conti GT, most of the tuned cars have just been done by crap organizations, usually a "friend of the owner". Cars with suspensions lowered by slashiing the air component, shoody tuning jobs that leave the engine crippled, rims with such bad offset matching that they were hanging on by a few threads of bolt... just cars crying for help... the list goes on.

    Re: Question concerning fan on GT3 decklid.

    Does the place name rhyme with Snoreline Motoring?

    Re: Question concerning fan on GT3 decklid.

    How can a company or individual like that call himself a "Tuner"? He must think that Porsche owners know nothing about mechanicals and thermodynamics. The fan is a MUST! Want a reputable Porsche tuner? Go to Ruf in TX!
