I am replying to my own post. I installed dual 12 inch electric fans
and built in shroud from an LT1 Z28 camaro 93-97. I have them
triggered by a 195 degree temp switch mounted in my top rad hose.
These fans pull a ton of air and cool the 500 very well. Sitting at
idle in drive the car never saw over 200 degrees and cooled to about
190 when the fans kicked on. I am running a 180 T stat.
Thought somebody might benefit from my experimenting, my cad 500 is
mild with 9 to 1 comp and a mild cam, fresh rings and bearings. also
nice not to here that direct drive fan making all that noise.
