Thanks for the tip for the reroute, I read that before, its a decision I made when I was building the motor.
One stock NB fan (you'll need to source one since the MSM fan is unique and won't work with our radiator) or a single aftermarket fan. No shroud.

Thanks! Do you recomend a particular aftermarket fan (or size)? Also guessing with the bigger core, the coolant system capacity is increased?

How are the Koyo units for street use? Again, spirited driving at times but no track use with extended load.

Our radiators hold slightly less water (~16oz) less than a Koyo55. There is a system capacity increase with any aftermarket radiator.

I have the mishimoto rad and fans and they seem to cool just fine. I replaced the msm rad right when I bought the car because the PO did a bad patch job, so I have no real performance comparison I can give. The mishimoto fans seem to pull al lot more air then the oem though. I'll see if I can get some actual temp numbers if it ever gets warm enough here in chicago. End of March and there is still snow on the ground... -_-

The stock radiator cools just fine, too. What do you do with the car?

16" won't even come close to fitting. Use a low-profile 12" or 14".
