Default improving air flow to radiator and a/c condenser

Anyone here know how I can improve the air flow to my rad and a/c condenser? I have a 92 hatch and it runs really really really hot and my a/c performance is suffering and my motor is almost overheating. I have a b18c5 motor in my car so there isn't a whole lot of room in the engine bay to upgrade fans and such.

Are the any fan upgrades available for my a/c condenser?

Thanks

get a dual core del sol radiator (search I don't remember what year it comes with), it's like $100 in autozone and it's enough to cool seriously boosted applications so it should be good for you. Bolts right up. About A/C try to recharge it.

Hmm if your running really really hot then you might have another problem. double check everything. like leaves in the radiator fins ect ect.
