Default radiator fan question

Hi I have an equivalent of a stage4 wrx. (turbo upgrade injectors fuel pump etc).

I recently installed a koyo radiator and I am running 80% distilled water and 20% coolant. Do you guys know if its safe to run 1 fan only for daily driving? Thanks.

As long as you don't see a lot of stop and go driving or drive in the city with the A/C on, you should be fine... Your fans don't come on during normal driving anyway as long as the car is moving (pretty much).

Depends on your drive. For me, Houston traffic in August would kill the car. If you don't spend a lot of time at midday parked on the highway, you might be OK. Unhook one, and watch your temps...
