As mentioned the fans are disabled in the tune based off of MPH.

A simple but not perfect solution would be to change your tire size in HPTs to make your car think you are going slower then you actually are.

I would be willing to bet this aftermarket radiator is designed to take up that same space. So I would ask a few questions before ordering.

You shouldn't need them but people in the hot ass climates do. His question has been asked many a time by people down there who drive fast on the freeway. I would guess the aerodynamics of the front fascia push the air meant for the spoiler actually underneath it, or disturb it enough allowing it to not be picked up
