what radiator and fan set up

What radiator and electric fan setup are you running in your street driven turbo cars? Im using a motorsport rad and black magic fan. It worked very well before the turbo was put on. Now the car runs too hot. Would like to know what really works. Thanks

I have a 2 inch 2 core aluminum and a summit dual fan setup.

Not really enough on my car, runs hotter then I would like

Champion radiator makes a 4x.75 core that is reasonably prices.

Also be careful of putting things like transcoolers in front if radiator.

modulars are probably a little different, but i run a single flex-a-lite slim line "lowboy" fan with a three core aluminum radiator and it works great

My brother had a black magic on his NA 351w car and it couldn't keep it cool either.

All aluminum 3 core from radiatorclassic.com $130

Lincoln Mark 8 fan scrap yard $40

Summit Racing variable speed control $99


Setup is awesome, the fan control has a startup delay and a 30 second run time for cool down.

That's a GOOD setup. Use it on all the cars I can fit it in. Black magic fans suck ass. SN95's work really well if you can fit them also.

Mark VIII fans work great and are cheap.
That plus a generic aluminum rad from summit work really well for me.

Im running a twin fan set-up from a contour, not sure of year though. No trimming needed, just some custom brackets. Works great.

On the mark VIII fans, I believe the first few years were 5000 or 5500 CFM and were louder. Then they slowed them down 500rpm. I'll try to find the info and Siemens motor numbers. Same thing on the taurus fans.

Motorsport radiator with a stock type metal flex-a-lite. Black magic is garbage.
