what fan are you going with? I was planning to do this too

Ive read you'll need a slim fan, maybe 2 inches thick. 16 in diameter?

and to the wheight point off view are you driving a race car ?? where you need to have the wheight down
car is being built for street/track use, I have also swappd in a manual BMW 316 rack and am doing the electric fan soon, only one belt on the motor, for the altenator and water pump. Guess it comes down to what we want outa our cars, and why waste gas and performance with an a/c system if you don't use it.

oh, you think the aux fan, being a pusher, would be better than one that is directly in front of the engine?
