The intercooler fan should be sucking air from the intercooler yeah? Like if you put your hand under the intercooler fan it would be blowing air downward towards the engine?
From the factory the intercooler fan only kicks on when you put a high load on the engine or intake air temperature is high. Long story short it donít run nearly enough which is the reason people are adding a intercooler override switch. Itís hard to test the fan because it will rarely kick on sitting still.

Ya that’s why I was asking, I installed the switch and seen the fan sucking from the intercooler so I was making sure... guy at auto zone told me if you hook reverse hook up positive and negative the fan will blow the opposite way, dunno if that’s true lol
I would think that if the inner cooler fan does not kick on when needed the increased intake air temp would drive the coolant temp up high enough for system to not keep up.
It’s all heat we want out of the system, better intercooler, better fan, fan coming on earlier with a tune, radiator as well. More heat out the better till the motor is running in its sweet spot (temp wise) under load...
