I know you haven't asked me for advice but; get the best flowing ones you can buy! I had to change one of mines to the OEM one.

Hah, I'm running one 12" fan and it works fine...

So 2 10" fans ought to be fine too, but then why not run 2 12"s like M2 said?

Chad, I have a set of these, but not in the car yet, I assume they should do just fine, they are rated at 1500 each, I know that changes with a radiator in front, but thats a total of 3000 combined, I'd go for the 12" ones though, just because I know that they would fit and they flow slightly more.

Give me an update when you get them in (ASAP perferably )because I would love a set of cheap fans if they work better then stock! And I dont want to spend almost 500 bucks for the stage 2 kit from FM

Stock flows plenty, that's not the issue, the fittment is like Chad said. Thicker radiator, plus thicker sway bar, you run into issues with fan fittment.

siliconeintakes.com 12" fans on Godspeed radiator = perfect fit with pull throughs




Compared to the stock fan's pushing the radiator forward against the sway bar.

Don't you have the 10" ones? Chad has the 12" ones.
No matter how I tried to type that, it still doesn't look right.

Use the 10% off found here somewhere. They come with the cool pull through/zip tie like mounts that are great.

Will two 12" fans fit on the stock radiator or if one will be enough to cool a stock '95? I had one implode on me today and might as well grab two while I'm ordering one for when i do upgrade the radiator.

How do you get the 10% code to work? I tried to order these and there is nowhere to enter the code. Comments field maybe? Also, the 12s on their site will cost me a total of $78 with shipping. Good deal or nay?

Also, the 12" siliconetakes version flows 1600cfm @ 6A draw. The street rod world version is 2000cfm @ 8-10A. What is the max current draw that is acceptable for our fan relays? The street rod world cost is about the same from their ebay ad.

I don't know anything about the draw, but when ordering, I suggest you call over the phone and talk them down to as low as they'll go.
