I think I'm going to try the vl radiator . Seems like less cutting to fit it and won't look out of place in the car . And run the biggest fans I can . Will post photos once I start the upgrade .

Cheers

Did you run vl fans with that radiator . Flick some pictures if you can .

Thanks jb for the photos gives me a better idea of what I could do . Neat job
Cheers

I run a pair of Davies Craig fans. I chose two smaller fans, as they give me a good air flow (2 x medium flow = 1 x big fan), allow me to spread that flow over a greater surface area of the radiator (more effective than shrouding - its one reason modern cars often run twin thermos instead of one big one), and are slim enough to tuck up under the bonnet latch mechanism without too much butchery.







Cheers,
Harv
