I'm still crippled and going thru my garage's obstacle course to look at my car's radiator is a bit dangerous for my knee, thus my questions:

As I understand it the TSE NB rad has only one set of stock fan mounts. Is it positioned off to one side making room for a 2nd fan? Or is it more centered?

If centered, then to mount 2 fans one would have to do some extra fab work?

I'm looking at the one photo of the NB rad I could find on the TSE website showing the fan mounts and I can't recall what the stock mounts look like.

Your recommendation of a single 14" fan .... 14" is much bigger than stock and 2 x 14" fans is way too big for any radiator, right?

Do you have photos of a 14" fan mounted on a TSE NB rad?

Lastly FWIW you guys may wanna add photos to the gallery.

The mounts on the radiator locate a single fan slightly off center to make room for the factory intake tube (required for Spec Miata).

Aftermarket fans are a DIY fitment. Sizing, fitting, mounts, etc. is all up to you.

Got this one mounted in the track tool and although it's only been on the dyno it outbeats every other rad out there.

No current ETA. There has been progress, but nothing that I can base a ship date from.

This, but one thing: where is the drainplug?!

Pop off the lower hose.
Our first prototype had a drain and we found that it was easier (and MUCH faster) to just pop off the lower hose, so we eliminated the drain on subsequent radiators.

It's not a huge issue, but that must have been the worst drain ever then.

I did drain using the lower hose, but I have brake ducting and other stuff there. Also, some coolant remains because the lower outlet is not at the absolute bottom.
