I was looking at some photos and I am interested in those pusher fans you have on the radiator.
Custom made or store bought kit?
Do you have a manufacturing part number/info on them?

Mmmm Big n beefy frame rails.

B is for build did a similar 90* dropdown going into the trunk for my his M5/240 cart project.

For the rear of the car he ended up a using a Jegs backhalf kit - or something like that.

As you can see - he hasn't really touched the rear end - so far hes barely gotten the motor/trans/rear diff bolted to the frame.

The fans:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000CNJB5A/re ... 1_ST1_dp_1

Just universal, Actually put one of them on my geo lol. They work great I thInk. Freed up a ton of space!

Ill have to check that build out! Sounds interesting. I saw 2 of his builds at the gambler 500 a month or so ago. I looked at the jegs kits, But Decided to make what I wanted instead of making something else work. Not exactly budget friendly.. but whatever lol.

Thanks, I have a 3100 CFM dual fan unit at the moment and although it fits I did have to trim the passenger side lower radiator hose to help it out a little bit.
I like how yours are pushers, I wouldn't have to trim the radiator hose again if I was to ever replace it.

Yeah, you dont realize how much room they fans take up untill they are gone! They say pusher fans are not as efficient but I never had any issues. Worked good enough for me.

Yah I think thats because of suction Vs pressure. But for a car I doubt its noticeable.

I assumed it's because they block frontal real estate as a pusher and not as a puller.
