pretty sure EL fans are to big.. i know the AU ones are because i had a set and they were way to big. ended up geting this set off ebay ... just notched out the inlet and outlet and they look shmick... only had them running of a test battery so far and they pull a lot of air so they should be good.

check out my build for pics ect im putting a stroker 355 injected in a vh sle

I've got ford mondeo fans and they fit perfectly.. El and au are to wide. Another option is a bf single 16" thermo which apparently work and fit very nicely.

Mondeo fans fit perfectly with a minimal amount of trimming required.

I run a modified VK 5L radiator with standard clutch fan works perfect even on the hottest of hot days. If you want dependability keep the factory setup.

If your running a modified engine with AU or Mondeo fans are the way to go, make sure yu gun atleast an 85A alt to keep your battery charged

sits in there perfectly. only thing i had to modify was the rubbers on either side that sit in the channel ... all i did was drill another hole in the rubber to suit the pin off set changing because its a bigger 52mm core. its just a cheap one of ebay but its the only one i could find that has a straight top outlet so i can use stock VN v8 hoses.

I used the same twin thermo fan set up. I mounted them the same way as pictured. Even the radiator looks the same as mine. I find them very effective.
