Hi Jdata. Yup.

The static tuft test will at least visually tell me if the fans move air out of the fender wells/vents while the car is at a stop.

I know it does because as I said , while sitting in the driver's seat I can reach my hand forward and feel the hot air coming out the vent.

The temperature testing is more related to my plan to install a hood scoop in a month or so and see if the scoop contributes anything to cooling the top side of the motor.

I'm working on a couple of ideas to mount a camera to capture the tufts on the hood. Probably a camera mounted on the top center of the windshield frame.

And to capture the tufts at the vent, a camera mounted to an old wind wing that I have.

I'll use yellow yarn which should show up very well against my Rangoon Red paint color.
