    I'm contemplating going to an electric fan on my drag car. Anybody have a suggestion on what CFM fan to use . . . or that I can get away with. I'd like to keep the amp draw as low as possible. I've done some research and it appears that the higher the cfm, the higher the amp draw. Previously I had been using the old school Moroso electric water pump drive with a flexalite fan.

    Thanks in advance.

    "the man" I have used and still use the same cooling set-up as you, forever. It allows me to control engine temp and I've not found a reason to change.

    Your correct about amp/cfm. I use a dual setup from a late model Charger/Challenger/300. Both fans running together pull 25-30 Amps. I can run one or both. It'll cooldown in 90 degree weather in less than 5 minutes to 140.
