I've got a single 12" Mishimoto puller that seems to work great, so a couple of decent 12" slim fans should do the trick. I wouldn't bother with Spal, last I checked they were very expensive.

Mines wired up to the stock system, so it kicks on when the stock one would have.

Mine uses the factory system for fan control during normal driving. I also have a switch inside the car that allows me to turn them on any time I want (say, idling in traffic, waiting in line for drag racing, or turbo-timer cool-down time). You just put a switch in line with either the AC high-pressure switch or the water temp switch and run the wires inside.
