Make sure you retain the shround and try and mount the fan as close to the rad as possible.
I ditched the shroud and aux fan.

So there's a lot of room with the aux fan gone...wondering if an oil cooler in the place of the aux fan would be better than the OE location. I can fit a bigger and less expensive Setrab there.

Or maybe do a small front mount cooler in series with the OE cooler.
