Agreed. I would go with a reservoir if you have the space.

stupid question i know but how easy is it to fill a bay reservoir? i Figured the t-line would be easier in that aspect and hence my choice of a t-line

Fans....

For best results on that BIX Radiator you will need some high CFM fans. Panaflos or Delta's work great...

I'm using a 5 of these on my pair of BIX rads.

T-lines work great!!!

I have a huge pile of hose clamps at the house. I do alot of marine diesel work and as you can guess they come in very handy. Will most likely use zip-ties though.

I currently have 6 Yate-Loon High Speed fans do you think that will be enough? i plan on making a home-made shroud from one of the guides...

Whats the CFM on those fans... 100+ CFM fans work best with BIX rads.
