Cooling Question - Turbo Application

Hey guys, as most of you know I have a 66 XR Falcon project ute which will be running a turbo 250 XF X-Flow.
I dont have enough room to retain the original mechanical fan so I am thinking of thermo fans. I doubt I will have enough room for a puller type fan so I am wondering what the best setup for a pusher fan would be. ie. twin fans or a single 16" thermo etc

Any help would be appreciated

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Re: Cooling Question - Turbo Application

one big fan is going to have more surface are than two smaller fans

Re: Cooling Question - Turbo Application

Depends on the radiator size and how much room there is. Twin fans will give you more even cooling on a big radiator, but it will really depend on how much room you have.
