I have a new griffin cross flow radiator and single spal 16 inch fan. I was wanting to use this on my build. I will be running a 6.0 and 700r4. Does anyone see any issues? I know most people are running the entropy with 2 fans. Let me know your thoughts.

There was someone with a thread about the 16" Spal fan and they were having cooling issues. I think it was an LS engine and the fan was rated for 1600 cfm. We haven't heard back yet but 1600 cfm is not a lot for a V8.
I'm using a Griffen rad and dual fans for a Ford Contour car. Had to have some mounting brackets welded on to mount it. It works perfect for me at any (or no) speed and I have an AC condenser and rad cooler in front of the rad too.
