So after taking the clutch fan and shroud off we found the volvo thermo was to wide so it needed to be trimmed. We trimmed it back and it just fits in comfortably. wire it up, screw it on and walah.
Car goes a little better now, revs alot more freely and the thermo cools it down very well.
I was going to get EL thermos, but i saved alot of money by using this volvo thermo. Currently a few of my mates have these on there cars; EA Spack, ZH farilane 351, VH commodore 308 , TC cortina 6cyl, VK 6cyl.
Mate can get cheap volvo thermos if anyone wants one pm me and i can sort it out. $50 each.
Anyone who still has there clutch fan, piss it off! they are useless!
I'm still yet to install mine but considering a good percentage of all noise the car makes now is from those stupid fans, I'm expecting it to be nice and quiet. Also better performance, fuel efficiency, quicker warming up (for less engine wear and lower emissions) and the sound you do hear will actually be good - the engine.
