If you're talking about a way to resolve heat-soak issues while not moving, then maybe. 
If you're talking about using a fan to increase airlfow through the IC, to reduce its 
temperature and increase power, it would take a pretty big fan to move more air through it 
than it normally sees at speed.  No analysis per se, just opinion.  For what it's worth, I 
don't think a radiator's fan contributes to cooling it either, unless you're moving slowly 
or stopped.

ok kids here's mr mismatched snow tires and wacky suspension questions
at it again..

so i've been looking into IC solutions for my a4 since it's a crap IC
in a not-so-great location [ahead of the drivers side wheelwell]. so
in the interest of improiving what i have, i've been wondering if
putting a small electric fan behind the ic to pull air thru it
wouldn't make it more efficient?

it works for radiators, right? has anyone ever heard/seen/tried this?
any flow engineers out there have input? always seemed to me like it
might be a really big improvement, of course with nothing but
supposition and inductive reasoning. =)

one one hand, i assume if it worked people would do it. so what i
wonder is, why woudln't it work?
