    all we did when we fitted mine was to move the rad back as far as it goes (the front of the rad now bolts into the back bracket as its normaly held on by two)
    the std fan is fine now fits fine with about 10mm clearance

    Mine's a front mount, tight fit, same methods as above, but the front bumper is also cut away. I like the look of it but Am after an aftermaket bumper now to cover it up.

    Clemo how much did you have to cut out your coupe bumper to get it to fit?

    A few of us were looking at mine today and after fitting theres (They have GSI & SRI-T Bumper) they cant believe how little room there is behind mine and they think its really gonna be a pain.

    What I did...

    1. Moved bottom rad back by one screw hole
    2. Moved top rad back by using spacers
    3. Removed crowl of the fan
    4. Trimmed the back of the fan unit (plastic) so it sits flusher to the rad
    5. Rotated the fan 90 degree (made some brackets to hold it)

    And I still only have 1mm clearance!
