Consider the fans from skip white on Ebay.
Ebay store for White Performance
Jerry aka Lancerman turned me onto these recently. He uses them.
I will be purchasing a few, in varying sizes, to see how they perform.
I am replacing the stock turbo C53a fan (puller with 2/3" shrouding) and adding a pusher, maybe puller where the AC fan should be.
Experimenting with 10, 12, 14" varieties.
Considering their twin 11" setup, but need some serious current from the alternator for that to happen, thus my alternator thread.
Stock Galant and Colt/Mirage radiators of the full length variety, are 14 3/4 tall x 26 5/16 long, that is the core alone, for reference when mounting things to it.
Those 11" fans in tandem (side by side) list the following dimensions: 24" X 16" X 4.5" (deep). These fans would require cutting off either the top of bottom portion to accomodate the core height. Likely best to trim the bottom up, until it works just right. They can still be made to work this way, and mount tightly in place. This goes against the pull and push setup that our cars share, with AC installed.
Might be too much for larger turbos pushing their outlets in the area of the front engine mount area, but it could still be tighter fitting that stock components; to be confirmed when I measure the stock fan I have out now. Stock Galant rad fans are likely just as deep with their shroud.
I am not going the SPAL FAL, or similarly expensive fan route. If Skip's stuff lives up to it's name and the ball bearings do the trick,
it is just a matter of fitment. You can't beat the pricing ... period; ever. I can afford to import these, versus purchasing anything local. Amazons selection sucks for Canada, even for vendors that have US holdings and oodles of products available on ".com", versus ".ca".
I have a Canadian vendor that I use a whole bunch, but the pricing is too high to justify what I need to try and accomplish in one shot, no returns on product, sell what I need after it is done if need be.
I highly suggest a 2/3" shroud that mates up pretty tight to the rad core/fins when using a puller in the stock location - pusher AC fan in the stock condenser location. Also, consider making templates for material to wedge in between the bumper and the condenser/rad, to accomplish as much air as possible across the cores, with nothing left to bypass when air is pushing or being pulled in. <- easier said than done, I know.
I am genuinely interested in how Mark's setup was working, so it's a two fold reason behind my adding and wanting to know more about this rad fan thread.
