You're probably here because you are after the best cooling performance and efficiency out of your intercooler setup. This fan is the largest out of everything we've ever seen. This fan is almost as big as the intercooler core itself! - Fortunately it also clears intercooler pipes!
This exotic Italian made fan moves a whopping 26.8% more air than the already amazing SPAL 9" 634 CFM slim fan through brute force and around 48.45% more air than our budget default 9" default slim fan from China, which isn't a slouch either.
We've never felt more cool air being rushed past the thick intercooler core fins by such brute force. The difference is night and day. We believe that due to space restraints, the common side mount aftermarket intercooler core had to be small and thick. But a thicker core definitely comes with drawbacks, such as very poor air flow throughout the cooling fins as most fans are not powerful enough to move much air through such a huge restriction. We also doubt natural air flow from MR2 being in motion is able to overcome this restriction effectively either. However, with the help of this behemoth monster of a fan forcing air through the whole core with pure brute power, heat soak is a problem of the past.
One of our customers is currently tuned and pushing 500+whp on our side mounted intercooler with this fan on E85 and 460whp on 91 octane comfortably. 2.2L 5SGTE stroker, GTX3071R and our CF intercooler pipes. His intake air temperature at 460whp 91 octane was around 100-105F (Very good numbers). His tuner (Peter @ Snap Motorsports in Sacramento) did say that any more HP past 500, that it would start becoming an issue. That same core we're talking about is known to be good up to 350-380hp on weaker fans and that is already considered pushing it at around 135-150F.
To properly utilize the full potential of your SPAL fan, we recommend using our dedicated wiring harness to properly power it. Stock wiring/relay system will not be adequate. SPAL truly makes the best fans money can buy and we highly recommend it.
SPAL branded fans are used on NASCAR, modern supercars, as well as many other high end automotive racing organizations/manufactures. Their motors are fully sealed, dust proof and water proof. Individually balanced for long life and high performance.
Our default 9" fan is not a slacker and is also commonly used. it features the same high efficiency straight blade 9" fan design for maximum air flow just like SPAL. Just doesn't move as much air unfortunately. You do get what you pay for
