Hey Justin here with AmericanMuscle.com, and I have with me Mishimotos’ dual 12” high flow fan setup, with aluminum shroud fitting all 79-93 5L Fox bodies. Mishimoto is one of the leaders in performance cooling, and thanks to their huge support for the Mustang, they continue to crank out quality cooling components such as this dual fan setup for your Fox. If you weren’t aware, the factory Fox body has a mechanical style fan that is driven by the serpentine belt. This factory fan does an OK job of cooling a relatively stock motor, but once you start piling those mods on, that water temp gauge has a tendency to creep up, especially on warmer days, and it’s at that point you realize the factory fan just isn’t going to cut it. Going with an electric fan or in this case twin fans is a very popular choice when cooling becomes an issue. Most importantly they tend to cool much better, but you’ll also free up some space in the engine bay and take some of the drag off the motor, and as a result you may even gain a few horsepower. Taking a closer look at this kit you’ll find Mishimoto includes these 2 electric fans that come preassembled with this aluminum radiator shroud. As for the install, it really isn’t all that bad, and honestly most of your time will be spent removing the factory radiator shroud and wiring in the new Mishimoto unit. When it’s all said and done you can expect to spend about 2 hours in the garage from start to finish. That leads me to my next point, obviously these cars weren’t set up for electric fans from the factory, so you’ll need to find a way to wire them in and have them come on, there are a couple of different ways of doing this: for one, you can wire them to your ignition, so basically the fans will come on whenever your car’s ignition is on, the second way of doing this is by wiring them into a 12V power source, and have them on a switch that you can control from the cabin. The third way is by wiring them into a thermostat switch, so basically the fans will come on whenever the car reaches a certain temperature. There’s nothing wrong with any of these 3 options, and it’s up to you to decide which one will fit your setup. Nothing can hurt your performance or quite possibly your motor more than unwanted heat, so if the factory fan in your Fox just isn’t cutting it anymore, then it might be time to look into a serious upgrade like this twin electric fan and shroud setup from Mishimoto, available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

I received my fan shroud and was very impressed with its overal construction. Seems very well made wiring looks good and came with the fans pre assembled on the shroud. I have a 3 inch radiator and tubler k member and there is plenty of room between the shroud and the accessory driveHelpful (0)

Go with the Contour fans
I really wanted this to work, but with the summer heat in AZ these simply can't keep up. Buy the Contour fans instead. They are more efficient, quieter and cheaper.Helpful (2)

Keeps it cool
First fan came in pieces thanks to delivery company Im guessing. AM sent me return slip and new one so that issue was resolved. The fan itself looks good and fits nice. Only thing is it would be nice if they came with the wire connectors to install since they are already attached to fan. I cut them off and used my own.Helpful (1)

No more overheating!!
My foxbody was constantly over heating after adding these fans, no more. Had to convert alternator to 130a in order to run properly.Helpful (6)
Will this work with the Mishimoto Radiator and Silicone Hose Kit (86-93 5.0L w/ Automatic Transmission)?
Yes, this will work with both factory and aftermarket radiators.
I have a vortech with 10 rib pulleys on it. I need to know how far this setup sticks out from the radiator. I dont have a lot of clearance between the crank pulley and radiator
The Mishimoto Dual High Flow 12 in. Fans should not stick out further than the stock fans.
How much amps does the fan motors draw when they come on? and will my stock alternator keep up.
The Mishimoto Dual High Flow 12 in. Fans with Aluminum Shroud has the current of ~8amps and would work with a stock alternator.
What's CFM of these?
The Mishimoto Dual High Flow 12 in. Fans included in this kit can move 933.5 cubic feet of air per minute thus moving 1867 CFM when both fans are operational.
Will this fit on a 1990 lx 2.3 4 cylinder radiator?
No, unfortunately, this is only designed to work on the 5.0l foxbody mustangs.
We can not guarantee an exact fit with other aftermarket radiators unfortunately. Feel free to call or chat in and we can help pick a fan/radiator combo that will keep you running cool.
Unfortunately, this dual fan setup is only designed for the Foxbody Mustangs. It will not work with your 94 GT.
We do not have the exact measurement of the Mishimoto Dual High Flow 12 in. Fans w/ Aluminum Shroud (79-93 5.0L) however if you have a clearance of 3.5" - 4" this fan with the shroud will fit.
The Mishimoto Dual High Flow 12 in. Fans w/ Aluminum Shroud (79-93 5.0L) will definitely bolt directly to the Mishimoto Performance Aluminum Radiator - Manual (79-93 5.0L), item #80202, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/mishimoto-manual-mustang-radiator-79-93.html). Also, these fans are not reversible.
The Mishimoto Dual High Flow 12 in. Fans w/ Aluminum Shroud would work best with an aftermarket overflow, due to the size of the OE unit, however, it can still be mounted. Depending on the application, it can fit right between the motor and the fan, or next to the intake. Both locations would need a bracket and a longer tube to the overflow.
I apologize about the mix up, it looks like the manufacturer has updated their product but we still have the earlier version in stock. The current Radiator fan and shroud kit that is being sent out on our website the CFM is 1867. Unfortunately we do not carry a thermatic controller for this fan and the only overflow tank we carry is the factory replacement. The only solution I can offer is somehow modifying the factory one to be smaller and can be positioned differently.
I think the dual fan set up is about 11.4 amps. Steve88ASCMcClaren
