Thanks Renegade--rep to you.

is the shroud one sided, or does it allow mounting fans on both sides of the rad?

Thanks again!

Shroud is one sided, but you can order another (DD had the option on the checkout menu) and you could run 2 sided. They give you all the hardware you need to be able to do that in the kit. With the fans i'm running, there is no need for 4 fans as these are 100+ CFM each.

Thanks for the info, Renegade,

Yeah, sounds like you don't need any more fans, and I'd run one-sided fans too. I was just looking at two-sided shrouding for mounting.

Those dual heater cores look awesome! I went ahead and tried the Black Ice Pro III radiator from DD -- 3 x 12cm^2 radiator area, 1/2" fittings, dual-sided built in shroud for $44, so I decided to give it a shot. I'll post my results.

Don't get me wrong--your setup rocks, I just wanted to try something a little different, and see how much bang I could get for the buck without having to fab a shroud.

Don't no about you, but i was running 2 shrouds on my heater core with 2 120mm intake fans and 2 120mm exhaust fans and noticed a slit increase in temps. Maybe to much back pressure.((don't no for sure)) Removed 1 shroud and my temps dropped 2-3c.
I do have a spare shroud if your interested!

Thanks for the info. It's interesting, and shows that our preconceptions are often wrong.

Same stuff as Zerex, just made by NAPA.

Can you take a pic of the back of that can? I would like to read it and is it clear in color? I would like to change the color of my juice, antifreez green is OK but I am getting bored with it and have this illuminated reservoir. I want to go all blue if I can.
