Default Recommend me a radiator fan setup

Hello,

I just installed my big RB front swaybar. After the install I tried bolting my cxracing radiator fan with shroud back on to the radiator. The radiator is a cxracing unit about 2" thickness. The fan is hitting the swaybar, and I don't feel like shaving the fan as it seems I would mess up the structural integrity of the fan.

What fan setup are people running in their car that would fit a thick radiator and big swaybar?

Thanks,
-Raj

If there's one thing I've learned in my 6 months here, it's that the radiator fans are the least important part on a turbo miata.

If I learned anything about them, its that the stock fans and shrouds are better than 90% of the aftermarket junk sold today.

Thanks for the info. I will see if my stock fans and shroud fits.
