    so we been working on a new cooling fan set up. i dont have room for an engine fan nor do i have room for a puller type with shroud. the radiator is the original one that came out of the caddy with the 500 motor so it is very big the core alone measures 17 x 32 1/2. there was currently 2 cheap 14 inch fans that maybe pushed 2000 cfm if that. so looked around at the dual fan setups with shrouds and the most cfm was about 3100 and cost damn near 600 dollars. the motor never over heated with the current set up the fans would just hold it steady at about 210 on the hottest of days. but as soon as you drove drops instantly to 180. So being cooling isnt an issue just wanted some more airflow. So decided to go with 2 16 inch fans with a custom made frame costing about 200 dollars and pushes 4500 cfm now
