with a 498" big block, she needs all the air movement (artifically supplied) she can get!

Thats fine if you dont drive the car over 15 mph, the faster you go the less air you push throu a fan like that, it acts like a big 14" plate once your mph gets higher than the cfm the fan pulls on it own, air looks for the least restrictive path and goes over the car instead of threw the radiator. Just a lil tip incase u run into a problem later.

If it works, then thats awesome! Your car looks really nice! Good job.
