Well ,I finally got in my Jegs twin fan assembly with integral shroud # 555-52115 with 2600cfm.I'm coupling them to my Jegs alu radiator # 555-52009. set up is pretty simple,nothing crazy in the way of fabrication or hassle.
First, after removing the rad,you have to bolt the AC condensor to the plastic skirt that runs from left to right. It normally bolts to the rad but since the Jegs rad has no provisions for it,you have to isolate it by bolting to skirt.
As you can see the condensor sits on top of the firm OEM neoprene strip.As the foto shows.
When you bolt it down it wont move or rattle. You bend the Condensor tab so it twists a little,this way it faces the skirt, like this.
Now lay the fans against the rad,see what you got.The fans are a tad small in width so I just left it.Maybe in the future I'll close the gaps and mod the fan shroud and isolate a few more cfm's
Even up the top and bottom of the fans in relation to the rad.I placed the fan shroud a little closer to the top so I could use machine screws.Very strong.
But before doing that I stuck some garden variety rubber door seal.I stuck it to the 4 corners to dampen vibration and to prevent marring of the alu rad
Next I cut a few Steel strips to place at the bottom
As you can see I pre drilled holes in the plastic shroud,bolted the strips to it and then bolted the other end of the steel strip to the rad using nylock nuts.Allways pre drill
As you can see,there is gobs of room for a performance rad.The little OEM rubber isolators just need a little trimming to accommodate and cup the bottom of the rad and moved a few inches closer together.I used a self tapper to screw the rubber pads down.Keep things nice and quiet.
The OEM wires are stupid long for the mod.I trimmed them a little and spliced in the Jegs wire connectors
And here they are all nice and snuggly in their new home.No movement.I took a strip of 2 x 31" foam I had laying around and glued it to the top of the rad.It replaces the old OEM green foam that rotted away.It is totally firm and holds the rad in place but gives it plenty of breathing room without rattles.
Rad plus fans do a great job of cooling things down
The fans measure 4" in width vs the OEM fan width of about 7"s. I now have alot more room to work with under the hood.
Rps The OEM hoses will no longer work with this set up.You will need to invest in a couple of specialty hoses made by Gates, Vulcoflex hose.Part #s-25530-Is a 1 1/2 x 1 3/4 And # 25302-1 1/4 x 1 1/2- Both hoses can be purchased at O'Reillys or special ordered from Jegs.About $20 a pop! You will probably never have to buy another hose again.They're that good.
pss The upper rad cover is hacked.no gentle way to put it.You do not have to do this.Just measure carefully and cut a nice square hole around the filler neck and yours will look much better. Haste makes waste.I will pretty it up tho in the very near future.
