Anyone installed it the GS radiator with unclocked greddy turbo and ****'s pipes? I know stock, the ****'s pipes are almost touching the pulley/belts, I'm afraid with the GS radiator's extra length it'll be impossible to route it through.

Thanks Phil.

I'll get one for now and add another later if needed.

I'm running Jim's pipes with the stock radiator and the pipes ARE touching my a/c compressor clutch as is. I would definitely order some slim fans. In fact I'm ordering slim fans right now and I don't plan on upgrading to the GS radiator.

I just replaced my A/C fan with a slim fan that I had. You can see how much room it frees up. I ordered another one from ebay just for this reason.

Links to slim fans are dead. How about you guys posting seller names?

Thanks Bryceness! Looking at levnubhin's pic it looks like the slim fan will accomodate the GS rad and Jiimb's pipes.

Got mine. Haven't got it in yet. What a great buy for all the cooling anyone should ever need! $160 shipped? Are you kidding me? Good to hear they clear the RB hollow sway.

Those slim fans look like the ticket with all that extra space they give you. Someone should contact one of the sellers of those and look for a group buy on them! Look how the rads exploded!

+1 on the group buy for the fans.
Is someone going to get that organized or will I just have to settle for the already ridiculously cheap prices so I can have a/c?

how's that weatherstripping stuff holding up? I'm trying to figure out a solution for the gap between the radiator and the fans myself.

Thought I'd bump up this thread. The group buy is still good. What a bargain for well under $200. This took 2 hours start to finish in a parking lot with a socket, hacksaw, screwdriver, drill and vise grip. Hardly scubbed my knuckles at all. Instructions at the start of this post are pretty much dead on. Ist time I tried to put it in I had just bent over the flaps on the side, didn't work, cut them like in the instructions. Thanks for taking the time for writing and pics! If I had followed instructions to the letter I'd have saved a few minutes.

Tight getting it back it but even with the stock fans, AC and the hollow RB sway it still fit in my 94 with everything pre-assembled. Now after BEGI installs the S4 system on my little mule next month, I have no fears of cooling trouble on the track!

Taking out the stock rad - what a joke that thing is. It's pathetic. No wonder people have cooling issues.

Are these the same people that might want to do lower priced intercooler sales to the rest of us?

I was under the impression everyone was using 10" fans.
