I have a 68 conv with a new 454HO with stock headers & after market air conditioning. I've redone all the insulation in the interior and the car still is hot inside. These engines just produce alot of heat. I installed two SPAL 6.5 pull  fans which move 330cuft per min right behind each front wheel facing down drawing the air out of the engine compartment. Had to make minor cuts,  but the difference in made is very noticeable. It's only been 80 degrees here in Delaware so far, but I haven't needed the air yet & no heat build up inside. The engine runs cooler also. Showed my neighbor who has a stroker camero with headers.. he's looking for a place to put the fans now. Found the fans at japcorptech.com. If you would like any more info you can e-mail me and I can provide pictures of placement etc.

??? Alan,
Do you know if there's any differences between the layout under your hood (besides that giant rat motor) and my '77 383 Stroker? i.e., do you think I'd have a problem mounting 'em in mine?  Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Marc.  Smiley

I know my car very well , but as for other years I'm not sure, but you should have more room than me as the C3 vettes are all almost the same. I'll take pictures today from the top & bottom and will e-mail to you or anyone that wants them. I only had room for 6.5" fans, but you should make a template out of cardboard and if you can go abit bigger go for it. I also made put a piece of sheet metal in the wheel well behind the tire to keep  stone etc from damaging the fans ... will enclose pic's of the also.  Good luck
Alan
