Looking good matey, the twin spal fins should fit pretty much side by side on the intercooler and blow through the intercooler, you should have a pin securing kit with it.

I had this kit a few years back, I ended up having to stick a big spal fan on the rad aswell as the two spal fans are good but they have to push through the intercooler core to cool the rad down aswell

what size fan did you fit behind if you can remember...iv abou 13" from top of rad to oil return where im getting caught so im thinking will i just go with a bigger fan behind and forget the 2 smaller fans

Wow, great work so far. Really inspiring stuff! Is that color 348 blanc panda? Mye GTE has that color.. Do you spray it yourself and what technique do you use? :)
