Overheating: Big intercooler blocking my radiator?
I just boosted my 2001 Prelude, and I replaced my stock radiator with a dual core 2" c&r Civic aluminum radiator (which is about half the length of my stock one) I removed my A/C, I am using a 12" 1300cfm fan on the back of the radiator, and it is hooked up constant. I also have a huge greddy type 24 intercooler, which is like 12"h, 30"w, and 3" thick, and I am thinking that this is actually blocking alot of my airflow to the radiator, because my car will start to get really hot after about 30 mins of driving (not boosting). So what I am wondering is that, I am looking to get a 10" 1400cfm fan and put that on the front side of the radiator and reverse it to push the air through, and I was wondering if this will help the car cool down better than the curent setup? Alos the thermostat is working, and the headgasket is not blown, thanks.

the intercooler should not make it over heat, is your fan pulling air or pushing it, i would check that first, those fans come setup to be pushers you have to flip the blade on the shaft befor you install it. and make shure you have the polarity right on the wiring, it gos diffrent ways for push and pull applications.
