I think it is too soon to expect this, but an aftermarket EBCS (electronic boost control solenoid) with more ports than the factory will allow greater resolution in the maps in the ECU, but will require tuning or the boost WILL spike. This would be an inexpensive (except for the tuning) option for the greatest gain in power.
In cooler temps, the VT seems to heat up similar to my old 2000 Tiburon. If left idiling, it never really warmed up. But as soon as you drove it 5 blocks, temps came up quick.
I have noticed when driving the VT without being at full temperature, that it seems the boost pressures are vented. Pulling onto the freeway with engine temperature at about half of normal, the car is lacking power and has a noticeable hissing sound coming from under the hood. By the next light, engine temp at normal, hissing is gone and car drives like normal.

We have been talking about this in great deal. Problem. We have not had a problem sustaining boost levels to 7100 RPM. If peak power were falling off, we would be able to make a move on getting a better boost control solenoid on the car. We have not seen an issue yet. When we do, we will be working on getting that addressed.

Fans should run fully if a/c is on but shouldn't be hard to wire a relay from battery and disconnect factory harness to just kick on with the ignition.
