From Summit Part # BCI-75007. I have a generic Summit $80 fan in the car now and I am not happy w/ it. I think this one will do the job. I measured my radiator and it will fit perfectly. It will get the whole radiater into the cooling game at low speeds. i.e. Autocrosses / Traffic where I have been havine some issues.



Anyone else using this or something similar. I really wanted a shroud so it will use the whole radiator.







Vendor: Be Cool Inc.

Product Line: Be Cool Radiator Electric Fan Kits

Length: 23.46 in.

Width: 4.25 in.

Height: 16.26 in.



Be Cool with these radiator fans.



11 in. dual paddle blade, hi-torque, electric fan



This Be Cool universal fan is perfect for cooling that monster of a motor. It's a hi-torque puller fan with dual paddle blades and an 11 in. diameter. Plus it pulls 2,780 cfm at only 12 V! Not only does it look good and perform, it has a great price too.



Sold individually.

I'm pretty sure my single 16" permacool moves 1/3 more then that for 1/2 the price.. you'd have to make or have a cowl made for it though..

I'm all for not overheating the engine, but I'm not seeing what that BeCool does that makes your engine less likely to overheat than a cheaper one that pulls comparable air. Maybe it's a magic fan, I don't know, I thought the black magic flex-a-lite fan was already too pricy @ $200 when I bought it.



I mean ****, these are simple DC motors, these people are raping us.

Go to the local junk yard and purchase a 1990-94 3.8L V6 Taurus/Sable?lincoln Town Car eFan. I have one and it really move quite a bit of air. The built in shroud fits almost perfectly and it was only $35. Give it a try before you go spending $280 on a fan.

i got the same fan and it pretty much cools it. trust me it should be good enough. since i upgraded to this fan, my temperature has always been at the (approximately) 1/8th mark everytime.

3000$ ecu



2???$ motor



????$ rebuild



I think 280 is affordable if it's the best solution out there. Plus it's the shroud and everything.



Hell I'm getting ready to spend 280 on a goddamn ignitor because it has a lifetime warranty. Who ever said sports cars were cheap??

So does the $35 Taurus fan.



Why don't you guys test them side by side when you purchase the be-cool fan. That would be some good information. I'll buy the Taurus fan from you when you are done if you don't want it.
