LMAO well,after all that it doesnt fit! The 10" fan contacts the frame.Really need to use my old little 8" fan and probably shouldve bought the cheaper 40mm core instead of 50mm. Its close,but not how i wanted.

Anyone want to buy this set up? Im over it for now and just putting the old radiator back in. Lol classifieds

That's right, positive under hood pressure at speed pushes the air out the wheel well. The PO of my mini fought this concept hard and lost. He had the fan on backwards, added an electric fan pushing the wrong way, he even vented the hood. I reversed all this and had to get a hotter thermostat.

You sure it's a puller? That would mean you're pulling heat back into the engine compartment from the wheel well not pushing it out into the wheel well. Is that your intent?

Spal #30100435 10" S blade puller. 802cfm i beleive.

Ive seen other fans claim more CFM,but after doing side by side i can tell they were way off.This fan moves a lot of air and really covers the core very well.If it wasnt for the flattened edges on each side it wouldnt quite fit without a shroud but its perfect with or wothout!

As far as a fan controller i am running a Hondata Ecu for the vtec swap and it controls the fan as it would a stock honda or you can adjust it to whatever you'd chose.

On another car ive ran one of the Fan switches that thread into a coolant port and ran a relay/fuse and it cycles as it said.Ordered the switch from summit for around $28 U.S. I also wired a switch as well so i can manually turn it on or off incase of failure ,or if i want to cycle the fan longer to cool it down more.

Thanks! The spal 10" fan fits this radiatir like it was made for it.Dont even need the shroud really but i wanted it to be a little nicer and cover every last centimeter since its a bit small for a vtec car as people claim.Well see,i dont track race so it should be good for daily/drag.

Well this is what i ended up with.Need to close the ports and relocate them with 1 1/4.Fan shroud has nutserts installed so the fan bolts in nicely.
