    I think 2 are required due to the load. Having to will stop your fan light coming on the dash. I looked round ebay and managed to get 2 9" fans pretty cheap. Think it came in just under £50 for both.

    if you do go for 1 fan make sure it is the same wattage (or higher) as an oe fan or you will get the EML coming on cos it thinks the fan has not come on.

    not sure how you will find out the wattage of an oe fan though

    By looking at these pics they seem like fans to be placed on the intercoolers rather than on the aircon rad. People sometimes do this to stop heat soak when at stand still. The fan will have to run manually. This is what im thinking as both fans are the same sizes as the intercoolers. Also that Pace cooler is massive. I would love to see one of those fitted to a coupe.

    Look into it mate as i may be completely wrong lol.
