 +====== Centaur Cooling Fan Intake Mod ======
 +**From the Ten-Tec Reflector May 29, 2004**
 +I have found through a little observation that the fan intake grill is too restrictive. The restricted airflow causes the fan blades run in a stalled condition which is inefficient and noisy. I carefully bent each intake rib on the case up about 45 degrees. This increases the intake area and smooths the air flow. A pair of worn (smooth) needle nose pliers was used to bend each slat. The appearance is uniform with little sign of paint stress.
 +Bottom line, the exhaust is 10 degrees cooler then stock, and a little quieter.
