Just came across that there are slim light weight high speed fan that would be able to replace Original rad fan on boxer. Anyone install this?

Its cheap here in Malaysia.. price comparison.. its about GBP150 for original complete rad fan assy incl motor... and mishimoto fan GBP50!

So i was thinking to get this fan instead.. looks like japs high tuned engine using this solution..

of course it fit. there are sizes from 8" till 16".

check out mishimoto website. the fan spec is in the site.

just need to put in the biggest size that fit for 2 fan.

its just that i m skeptical on the motor performance as gates oem motors spins at a very high rpm ... but not sure of the numbers.
