If I had to guess I would say your K engine has nearly nothing to do; unless you're flogging it with dyno or drag pulls it's going to run super cool most of the time.

This engine came out of what again, an Accord? TSX - same thing, essentially. A car which weighs literally twice what the K-sight does, and has poorer aero to boot. No wonder the engine runs cool.

I wonder if you even need the radiator fan.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
