    Exclamation Need some help please guys on rad dimensions

    Could someone please tell me what the dimensions are of the total area that is exposed on the radiator on the inside of the engine bay of a coupe turbo or GSI? i.e. dimension from left to right and top to bottom from the engie side.....I need to know how much space I have to fit two new cooling fans...

    Much appreciated, if someone has a photo that may be of any help too......thanks.

    Cheers mate - I'm going for a twin fan setup and want to know which size fans I need. 2 x 10", 11" or 12". Suspect that 10" might be the way to go, although at 600mm I could squeeze in 11"s.

    Is your rad stepped back due to the Pace i/c?
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Good point... you still on the pace cooler for the new setup?

    600mm would be a squeeze though, because it's not open space down there, there's all sorts of pipes and clips in the way which would have to go. You can see from the pics how cluttered it is.

    Have you considered extra scoop venting on the bonnet to channel air down the front of the engine?

    Not sure on the Pace cooler - we will see if it is up to the job later - sometime between PV and Trax, Keith - the rads are in the OE position with the Pace cooler.

    I thought about vents, but don't like most that I have seen - so have one of these waiting for me to fit.....



    This should exit the hot air drawn over the top of the rads. I'm determined to get rid of the big clunky OE fan though!
