You want as much cooling as possible without fans. Fans are only for when car is stationary for too long. I'd loose the cover or install flaps.

when driving the air slips thru.
Loosing the cover will reduce the cooling efficient.

We alwaysbuild the radiators cooling like this And they works fine.

Loosing the cover will allow radiator to work properly. It will only reduce force cooling when fans kick in. That should only happen in traffic jams, most of the time air you travel trough is much more powerful coolant than what that fan can move.

If you really want powerful cooling get a multi pass radiator.

i disagree there, the opening infront is 1/3 of the radiator size.

Spal fans spins Nice on airflow letting the air to go thru without engaging.

So dont worry

His design is also bad but better, he doesn't have 50% of radiator covered with shroud. With design you made, you only use about 50% of radiator surface when fans are off (which should be most of the time). So half of that massive cooler is doing nothing but sitting there.
However It will probably work ok either way because cooler appears to be overkill.

Great way to test this kind of system is blast it with water or pressure washer. If water which is like air also fluid passes with ease and deflect in a way you want, you did a good job, if it hits flat surface behind radiator it fails to rapidly move trough it and thus doesn't cool at all.

If nothing else, I would add flaps like these:

I don`t agree, the front is air sealed, all the air going in, must go thru the coolers.
So, the entire radiator is used. On all the cars we have done it like this, we never see engine temp problems.

But thanks for the advice.
Im more curious on my self made intercooler.. had to learn how to Mig weld aluminium..

Yes, have cleaned and blow thru a lot of high pressure air + water.

Probably not a good idea to clamp that spindle pinch bore in a vise without a spacer.
