    Upgraded Dual Fans for the CTS-V

    I'd like to get some input from you guys regarding the factory fans. We've been asked a few times about upgraded dual fans for the 04-07 CTS-V. I'm curious what you guys think in terms of this upgrade? I think most of us will agree that the V runs to the hot side and is designed that way from the factory. I think the first fan turns on at something like 215*?

    There's not a lot of room but we should be able to get some better fans in there. I've attached a picture of a dual fan kit we already offer for another vehicle. We use Spal fans, everything is plug and play, shroud is aluminum, and we have it powder coated in black as well as others.

    Thoughts and opinions on this or do you think it's a waste of time? Thanks for your input.

    Any idea on the approximate cost? Seems like a great option if you're considering upgrading or replacing your present radiator. The biggest hurdle is (as always) going to be interference between your products and aftermarket blowers and intake tubing.

    Re: Upgraded Dual Fans for the CTS-V

    I have an aftermarket radiator and a tune that triggers the fans at a lower temperature so I don't have a temperature issue.

    I might be interested anyway because I have a clearance issue. Specifically, the stock fan shroud allows the radiator hose to encroach on the fan space and I cut up one hose before I clearanced the passenger-side fan. So my question would be - is the upgraded fan unit any "thinner" than stock. I like the look of the fan shroud as it looks like it would serve to prevent my potential radiator-hose encroachment problem.

    Re: Upgraded Dual Fans for the CTS-V

    I don't have issues with my heat mainly from a lower T-stat and lower turn on temperatures via HP tuners. That said I would be interested in a new fan setup, especially if you could package it with your radiator. My biggest concern like Fuzzy and Darkman is clearance, currently trying to figure out how to get a 4" intake tube to fit with my factory setup.

    What would be really awesome is a rad setup that allows clearance for an over the radiator air intake from the front grille. That would sell to everyone, not just people looking for a more durable radiator.

    i run a 4 inch intake tube and 102mm MAF with aftermarkter radiator. I would also upgrade fans, if available.

    As people have mentioned already the stock fans do a good job keeping things cool once you change the thermo and adjust the turn on times. The biggest advantage would be the gain of space.
    You are in NorCal aren't you ?

    I concur that a thinner design than the oem would be awesome. With your radiator and my supercharger things are getting very tight under the hood.

    Re: Upgraded Dual Fans for the CTS-V

    The biggest cost factor would be the fans. What diameter are the stock fans and how thick is the shroud/fan currently? We sell the black shroud/fans pictured above for $379, just as an example.

    A radiator with over the top clearance for intake is not out of the question although we would need to do some kind of of pre-sale group buy for them. Thanks everyone for the input so far.

    I think better fans would be a good upgrade... I like the idea of making space for a different intake option

    Re: Upgraded Dual Fans for the CTS-V

    That would be a total game-changer if we could eliminate the bend. This would really open things up for NA guys.

    I don't know shit about turbos, but could it even open up room for a turbo to be mounted in the space freed up by the airbox?
