After I installed the ER Comp on my car and consequently added a rather large and in charge PS cooler above it, the PS fluid isnt really getting very warm anymore. The temps have been cooler, around 70 or less, but after I stop the car I'll hop out and feel the pipes on the cooler core and they are just lukewarm at best. The cooler has an extra loop of cooling compared to the unit provided by ER, I used it because I just happened to have it sitting around the garage from a previous car.
I'm just a bit concerned that the fluid may need to be warmer to operate more efficiently for the pump, rack, etc. Does anyone know how warm it should be (roughly)? Hot to the touch? Clearly burning hot is probably not the best, but how cold is too cold?
I'm quite concerned about wintertime as well. I feel like I should maybe fab a plate to block some airflow when it's cold outside.
On a positive note my IAT with the new FMIC are steady at 80*F, so pretty much within 10*F of ambient. Niiiice....
