Default electric cooling fans

Anyone see an issue with moving the main fan over to the other side of the rad? I removed my a/c and would like more room for my air filter/intake side of things.

Will cool just as well, but the mounting points are a little different

I have two 12"s-blade fans mounted to the front side of my radiator and pushing air in. Works awesome and gives lots of space in front of the motor to work with.

This is hard to look at, but here's what I got:



It works great. Haven't had any overheating issues.
Haha, just realized I have one s-blade fan and one straight blade. They were supposed to be both s-blades and I just never noticed when I installed them.

Did you just wire them all up to the same main fan wire? I'm thinking about adding one infront of my ac compressor behind my intercooler. I just planned splicing it onto my main fan wires.

One of them is hooked up to the stock wire, and the other I have hooked up to a switch in the cockpit. I've been meaning to hook it up to a relay off of the main wire but just haven't done it... man I wanted to do that like 2 years ago.
