I’m aware that it’s a good fan set up, but it’s a space thing. Derale has a set up that pulls 4,000 CFM and is 3.5” thick. I’m really just wondering if the aftermarket has gotten any better over the years.You would be hard pressed to get better performance than the stock fans. Guys building other makes of cars seek these fans out.
Does it keep your car cool? How much room do you have between the crank pulley?Bulldog,
T6Rocket is right - most aftermarket fans can't provide the airflow of the "best" Ford OEM fans (Mark VIII, Taurus, Thunderbird/Cougar). Here are a couple of things I did to address the fit and performance issues: (1) Trimmed 3/4" off the box portion of the stock fan shroud, which increased space from the fan to the engine accessories while still allowing clearance between the fan blade and the radiator. (2) Added a 14" aftermarket pusher fan in front of the heat exchangers to increase airflow through the cooling pack. The stock fan needed help after I swapped the factory radiator for a Griffin 2.5" thick core and added a transmission cooler and supercharger intercooler.
It’s been 10.1.Holy crap!!! You must be well into the 10’s then. I’m knocking on that door and had hoped to break through this spring. Not sure when I’ll get the car to the drag strip.
Assume you are running E85. What fuel pump and injectors are you using?
