Need a radiator reccomendation.

Long spry short, I am rebuilding an '02 GT turbo. The turbo mounts in front of the passenger side of the motor. I want a little more room between the turbo and the fan. Anyone have any suggestions on where to start looking for a high efficiency slim radiator?

If you can get a front mount fan that blows backwards. Itll give you room

That's a good idea, that I never thought about. Probably cheaper then a custom radiator too. Thanks.

Mishimoto makes many push/pull fans. The only thing is that our fans stock pull about 3000-3500 cfm which is alot of air to move. Most fans will not move that much, not to mention we have dual speed fans that are also linked with our ac systems. Most likely you will need multiple fans. Pushing and pulling

Yes but what im saying is to move the cfm of the stock fan you will need both a push and a pull fan

Some of the best oem fans are 99+ mustang. Taurus mark viii and viper. They all pull between 3000 and 5500 cfm which is very high. Most aftermarket sblade fans only move 1800 to 3000

Re: Need a radiator reccomendation.

oem fans pull more than necessary. they stay on low speed for most of their oporation unless you turn the ac on. but there are plenty aftermarket fans that he could get that would front mount and cool just fine

I destroyed my radiator getting the old motor out. So, I need both. There has got to be a radiator/fan combination that will give me room and keep me cool.
