Bob provided a great answer as always. :thumbs:

I have a built 454 (pushing 550 HP+) so I wanted to be sure I had plenty of cooling capacity. The two fan set ups maximized coverage of the radiator and also provided the greatest volume of air movement.

Originally I was going to have the fans run on a stepped arrangement (e.g. - Fan #1 on at 185, Fan #2 on at 200 deg) but I'm probably just going to wire them both to go on at the same temp. It's easier and less wiring.
Someday I'll finally be able to drive my Vette, but for now I'll just admire all the pieces... :willy:
