Glad to hear it. I'm always thinking about getting his kit but replacing the intercooler with something thinner that wouldn't make me have to cut up my bumper cover. U guys running AC and PS?

That's awesome. I've got an LX too. I'd like to keep it looking as stock as possible. How did u know which intercooler would fit without modification?

i would def have it ceramic coated by brain if he does it or send it out its def worth it and wrap the downpipe and crossover pipe and invest in a turbo blanket you can get those from VSracing. All that stuff really keeps down the under the hood temps my car is at 185 on the hottest days.

Man, I wish I could keep mine a bit cooler. I have the downpipe wrapped and the blanket on and it just hangs a bit over 200.

Summit Racing SUM-G4850 - Summit Racing® High Output Electric Fans - Overview - SummitRacing.com

They are both wired together. They come on at 200, off at 180 and I have a manual override switch to turn both the fans and electric water pump on while the car is off.

I have a Ron Davis 2x3/4 core aluminum radiator.

I have been thinking of changing to a Champion 4x.5 core.

As I write this I am thinking it may make sense to drop the turn on temp to the lowest possible per the DFI setting.

that might be your problem i would use the MARK 8 fan because it looks like your fans only do 2,600 cfm and the Mark 8 does anywhere from 3,800 to 4,??? i believe and has been proven to be one the best e-fans to use.

Won't fit.

I have a Meziere electric pump that lacks clearance for a big single fan. I need to use a dual fan so the idler hub spans the middle of the two.

You now have me thinking though, if I could get a massive dual fan, I could probably wire it so that one fan is controlled the way the current one is, and above 1700 rpm the second fan comes on (to avoid too much current draw).

I plan to add a custom fabbed sheet metal tanked intercooler which may require moving the radiator back further in order to get it behind the nose.

Stupid LX, just not enough room!

The Taruas fan will fit with the Meziere water pump. That's the setup that I run in my LX. It flows almost as much as the Mark 8 fan.

New build in progress: Twin Gen 2 PT6466 352

Old combo:352 single 76mm turbo, 16psi, AOD, 9.41 @ 149mph, E85, 255/50/16 MT DR, 3500lb STREET car driven everywhere.

I don't think the kit comes close enough to cause an issue with the stock shroud.

The issues we are discussing are all of the other things fitting with each other.

you can keep the stock fan if you want i had already gone to the Mark 8 fan before the B&G install but i have seen many people locally that have the stock fan with the B&G kit and it fits perfect

hey. Just visiting from "the other side" i was running a taurus fan n/a after my vortech i switched to a thicker alum radiator and i was forced to use a contour fan. The contour is an awesome dual fan with plenty of clearance and it moves a ton of air.

1990 LX, Vortech V-3 Sci-Trim, 6.87 / 3.33, Power Pipe, bullet 75mm MAF, GT-40 Explorer heads and intake, TFS-1 cam, MAC 70mm T/B, BBK Equal length shorties, BBK O/R H-pipe, Flowmasters with Dumps, FRPP 4.10 gears.

Running the BG kit also. Only the hot side and major parts from him such as the Turbo, BG, WG and a/a cooler. The cold side I built myself.

Only issue I had was the header flange sitting flush because of the cylinder heads. simple fix.

Dart 348ci, Ed Curtis cam/valvetrain, Precision 76mm, Holley Dominator EFI, CNP ignition, tons of Holler EFI small parts, 4"dp, 4R70W w/T-brake, new suspension coming soon.

Little 750rwhp at 6,000rpms and only 10lbs of boost before we just got tired of playing with clutches. New 4R70W and we are turning it up. Expecting 1,000rwhp.
