there should be no issues. Typical causes of failure as you might guess are improper bleeding, failure to flush and refill, and incorrect mixture. I do have to say the car is noisier with the mod because the aux fan is constantly running. But I've had my fan delete for a year now with no problems whatsoever . . any issues I've had were atrributed to my stupidity
Team PTG designed it for the TRACK, not for daily driving, especially stop and go. On the track, you are always pushing air across the radiator, since the AC condenser is removed for performance and weight reasons. I still question its abilities on a daily driven vehicle. I still can't believe BMW would run plastic end tanks, no matter how well they are made. I will probably go for an aluminum one during my engine swap later this year.
