    mate go the single 16" one with a Davies Craig thermo switch to control it..

    Lazza78 has this on his VLCT. More engine response as its not dragging a fan (His clutch was stuffed) and keeps it cool as

    there is some mods to do to the fan shroud but not as much as installing twin au thermos etc etc

    as nath said... i fitted a 16in fan to my calais about 6 weeks ago, my old fan was locked solid and could not even turn it by hand in the end...

    depends on ya cooler piping but if u have a standard inlet and ur cooler piping runs in front of the radiator twin fans is a no-go...

    with the single 16in and only used the top half of the fan shroud and i also used the davies craig thermo control switch with it, takes a bit of muckin about to get the fan to cut in when u want it too but all up, took me 2 hrs from start to finish(fitting fan, wiring controller and setting the controller up)

    hope this helps mate, any Q's send me a pm..

    Larry
