Electric Fan setup for BBC Camaro

CROSS POSTED
I have a brand new 16 inch electric fan that is advertised at 2750 cfm. Is this good enough to cool my 496 in my 69 Camaro with an aluminum Radiator? My issue is I am running a long style water pump. I thought about having a stainless shroud made for it to dress it up. I have just a bolt on fan and no shroud. I thought about adding a shroud, but I plan on installing A/C in the very near future. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm going to say no since it's borderline enough CFM, bolted directly to the radiator, and NO shroud.

I'm running twin fan set-up with a shroud which covers more and in turn cools better.

similar to this...

I have the same Spal fans on my radiator as in the picture. They move so much air you can feel the strong pull of air even in front of the grill when they are on high speed. Great fans.

Just think of the MPG increase by having the fans pull the Camaro ...
