Aeroforce gauge + IC pump + fan

So while purging my S/C coolant the other day I noticed that one of the options on my Aeroforce gauge says IC pump + fan.

So I tried it out and sure enough it turns on both. Has anyone done this between track sessions during a track day?

I'm curious if this helps cool down the S/C quicker?

Next question would be how long I could keep this running without draining the battery and not be able to start the car. lol

I have turned it on before after some spirited driving while letting the car sit. It cools down the IAT2 temps to about 20 above ambient after about 10 or so minutes. It's obviously just circulating the coolant while the fan acts as air coming through to cool the heat exchanger. It is a nice option to have for sure, I could see it being useful at the track.

I bought mine from Maryland Speed P/N CN 202 (White on black background)

It actually looks like white on blue background but is the best match for our consoles.

Does anyone know if these gauges can monitor nitrous functions (bottle pressure, etc)?

There are 2 analog options. You can add a air temp, fluid temp, pressure (oil, etc). AeroForce sells sensors but it may be possible to use another if you have the scaling formula.

I have 2 of mine using CAI temp and my intercooler fluid temp.
