    17" 4-Blade Race-Fan

    Excellent quality and construction. I replaced a 19" 4-Blade steel factory fan (old school). The 17" 4-Blade Race-Fan definitely moves more air. I used this fan without a shroud with the blades approximately 1 inch from the AFCO extra capacity double pass radiator (Same positioning with the old school fan). The engine is a Chevy 350 with solid lift cam and Dart 49/200 heads (13.5 to 1 compression/510 horsepower). The engine used to run 200 to 210. It now runs 170 to 175. The only other change was moving from an AFCO racing water pump to a Stewart Stage 4 water pump. I am sure that the total temperature decrease was due to both parts, but the fan is certainly a contributing factor. The two work well together. I am certain that the fan alone would result in a decrease in water temperature because I could feel a substantial difference in the amount of air being moved by this fan compared to an old school factory steel fan. It seems counter intuitive that moving more air would result in an increase in horsepower, but I did turn about 300 more RPM with this setup. I would attribute the increase to cooler cylinder temperatures.
