Re: Fan Shroud??? Yes or No?
That only applies to a mechanical fan as an electric fan mounts directly to the radiator. When was the last time you saw an electric fan with a shroud on an OEM application. I had a civic and a turbo eclipse and neither of them had a shroud on the electric fan. I agree 100% with your statement when pertaining to a mechanical fan, but not an electric, which I have. My car has no problem staying cool when running at very low speed or at 5000-6000rpm. The car at 6000 runs at 195 degrees, but as soon as it comes back down to 2000rpm it drops right back to a cool 180.
