lol, I was saying that if he installed his coolmaster V8 fan the same way as the real V8, it would be blowing the wrong way. The fan on a motor blows air towards the radiator, not the motor itself.

joke = fail lol

See the little plastic braces that connect the shroud to the motor. By looking at the pic below, the air would be blowing right in your face.
Look at the blades. The rotation is clockwise and the blades always point towards the direction it rotates when this fan(on the pic) blows towards you.
Hope that helps.

Umm not quite true about the fan on a motor. It pulls air through the radiator, towards the engine itself. Some radiators have fans on the other side blowing air into the engine compartment but that is less common.
