I'm really waiting for the scangauge to come in before I do any true aero mods.

I did have a question for you. Have you even though about having the coolant temp readout on the SG and having the fan on a switch? This way you can manually control the temperature when needed, or would that just be a PITA?
I sometimes watch my coolant temp on the ScanGauge. I wouldn't bother with a switch, the PCM does a good job. It kicks the fan on around 225 and off again around 210...or something like that.
