Default radiator cooling/intercooler fan setup idea

Okay, my coolant temps got a bit warm the other day and my brain started to think about options. What do you guys think of this? I am planning on having one 12in or 14in shrouded fan pulling from behind the radiator with one 7in puller behind the intercooler, both wired together off the main fan relay. And then I would have a 7in or 10in pusher mounted in front of the condenser wired into the A/C fan wiring. I think it would work nicely in addition to the scooper I will be fabbing up. All fans would be very slim and should fit.

Thoughts and opinions?

well, I think its dumb. Look at the crew who tracks their cars. We rely on positive pressure up front, venting with negative pressure out back. that's the answer.

I suppose 2 slim pullers would work nicely and still allow more room for IC piping, maybe even an over the radiator setup.

Bingo. Fans are fine if you never do over 60kph, but at speeds they just get in the way. Proper ducting is the answer.
