Are there any options to put fans in that flow more CFM than the stockers?

Meaning because yours don't work well enough?

He lives in like death valley or something. :) (Phx)

I've used a couple different types on some of my cars. You might find a nice pair of 3000+ CFM units from Black Magic or something. They will draw some power though.

A good venting hood is something we also need. Katech has that nice one on the race V so I dont understand why they don't make a production one for us when they already have a mold.

If you change them out make sure you have a real nice shroud made. I have never paid attention to our radiator but is ours the same size as what comes in the camaro or is ours larger. Is there any reason to look into a larger multi core radiator?

D3 makes a great looking upgraded radiator. Anyone use it?

Not necessarily interested in a larger radiator but I am looking to cool other things better such as the intercooler and condensor :)
It gets hot in hell.
Ill do some research but a drop in fan that flows higher is what would be beneficial. Maybe to others as well....

I doubt a fan does any good to you at all. I think there are too many other issues retaining heat in the engine and what not then the fan will overcome. I think you would be better off to open up area's or remove plastics, get more flowing through there. Have you looked at how tight everything is? I'd bet a vented hood, or more air coming in ie pull some of the lower cowel towel black crap off so it flows. I could be wrong and maybe I am but I bet if you take temp readings now and after your fans you don't/can't tell any difference.

I see cooling wise the hood > fans. Both in combination would be the best setup. I know LPE has the specter werks hood but lets face it, that thing is not pretty.
