I have a 2000cfm puller fan on my chariot, If I added another 2000 cfm fan pushing, would it cool better (4000cfm?)

I may be way off and if I am someone please set me straight. One fan is pulling or pushing 2000cfm the other is getting a free ride and your total is still 2000cfm. You may gain a small amount kinda like drafting behind another car. I think the increase would be minimal though...

I think you're right. It might add a little but not anywhere near double.

Hey, thanks for the replies, I think I may go and get a higher cfm fan instead, or go with a dual setup, thanks again!!

I have a 16" puller and a 14" pusher and on opposite sides of the radiator, they overlap just a little. The best way to cool your engine with electric fans is to bring air through as much of the radiator as possible.

I may just be stating the obvious, but i thought id mention that fans work much better at pulling than pushing.
