aftermarket fan pairing with mishimoto radiator

Postby grip-addict » Thu Apr 22, 2021 7:49 pm

hiya,
I'm running a mishimoto radiator and had to switch to their slimline fan since the stock fan/shroud doesn't fit.
I'm battling overheating issues at stoplights/idle and the mishi slim fan does not appear to be keeping up.

Has anyone else run this radiator with an aftermarket fan successfully? What did you use if so? :)

Thanks. Are you getting by with just 1 and no shroud?

Yeah, no shroud and just the one on the drivers side.

I have a pusher i might add to the other side as well, but it hasn't needed it.

thanks, i'll give it a go with a SPAL. I've been thinking about switching the fan with the Haltech anyways, so this is a good excuse to run a new wire :)
I might see if I can convert the mishi fan to be a pusher and swap it to the other side of the radiator. The AC condenser is still in place though, so I might need to get creative :wink:

+1 for a Spal fan. . . I'm not necessarily using a shroud but I did have some mounting tabs made so that I could space the fan off the rad a bit to add foam between the rad and fan. All this because I despise those push-through zip-ties. Also notice. . I reused the OE connector so it's plug and play.

I used these for mounting https://www.speedwaymotors.com/SPAL-Fan ... ,5549.html

and

I actually talked with one of the SPAL guys at PRI he recommended the metal through the rad mounting. The plastic ones torque too much.

I used a no-name fan with an ASI rad and had no issues, even in the middle of the summer (40*C and higher).

I run a single 11" high flow spal fan on my eBay radiator. No issues. Highest temp recorded daily driving in traffic etc so far since March is 212F. Mostly stays under 200. The JB weld is holding up just fine!
