or you could just get the self adheisive foam and block all the gaps and seal the fans to the rad.

that's what I'd probably do now in hindsight
Good deal, easy enough. Now the question is just CXRacing for $140 or the noname for $120. If the mounts on the one Curly orders fit fine with the fans, I'd pay $20 more not to have to fudge with it.

So now the question is: MSM or Egay?
i monitor sensor data on my phone app called torque, and i feel like the msm radiator sucks, it warms up fast as **** and the fans are constantly kicking on and off, they do cool the car down fast but ive never tracked it. They kick on at 98* and turn off at 92*. I mean my car does have 100k on it but its in really good factory condition with fresh coolant. On my old egay radiator turbo setup car it would steadily hold between 84* to 90* just like a normally aspirated car during summer and spirited driving, it did have a coolant re-route tho so idk. just my .02$
