First Start overheat

Braiden Johnson

Recommended Posts

Just got the car started today, don’t know a whole lot about tuning, did adjust for a smoother idle on fuel main. It started to overheat so I killed it, it got up to about 236 before I shut it down. It has never overheated as a matter of fact it runs cool,(dual electric fans) larger radiator high volume water pump. Help why the overheat? Where do I start tuning?

Are the fans working and set to a suitable activation temperature?  You can put the aux in test mode to check they are working.


Yes they are switched on

Have you choosen the correct temp sensor in software?

No, we didn’t know about setting correct temp sensor...the gauge showed it hot pretty quick, we have a pusher and a puller and we normally have one unplugged because the car would never reach operating temp with both on. Both were on for initial startup because we were in a hot garage.
