Three Buses at one time- Yet a further Fiat Coupe Video.

Feels like an uptick in appreciation for the car is happening!

This guy has talked about them before- and clearly likes them.

Smiled at the "on a few forums" reference -(we know which one!!!). And at the Aux Guard mention!

Was this car owned by a member?

I've only been on one Rolling Road so they may differ, but won't they be losing power by not running fans in front of the car?

I thought the same, they may have it out of sight but it’s strange
Not to have air blowing on the front of the car when dynoing a car.

Loving all the content recently & I’ll be making more soon.

That's generally for airflow through the radiator, to keep the temperature in check, as I understand it. Not sure how much if anything moving air into the front of the vehicle would improve power, particularly if there's a turbo in the loop anyway.

It helps stop heat soak which in turn helps keep charge temps under control and therefore air density as high as possible. I'm sure you'll not gain much power, but it'll help reduce loss after a couple of pulls - that intercooler really needs moving air for efficiency
