I had a 2 speed taurus electric fan and killed it last summer while testing the Snorkel. So I've been running the taurus shroud with a generic autozone 16" efan . It's not cutting it. I'm over on the mopar forums and ran across the HHR fan being a popular mod. I just went out and measured my all-aluminum 3 core radiator on my 5.2L. The HHR fan measures 22" wide, 18" tall, and 4" deep. My radiator's fine surface area(same size as the stockers) is 22-1/4 wide, 19" tall, and there is about 5 -1/4" of clearance between the radiator and water pump pulley. Pros over taurus fan *$60 for fan and shroud assembly *Much less draw(15amp) and doesnt spike badly like Taurus fans do *Dimensions fit like a glove *Flows atleast 3000cfm I know a few guys that have to run dual fans because they dont have proper shrouds. But this should fit perfectly. I'll post up pics after it is delivered this wen and installed. I wanted to share this for those who want to get a cheap electric fan and want something that will be efficient.

UPDATE: Fan is installed. Working great. I have now had it running with the AC on constantly, in Houston heat and driving. Stays right below 210* with AC on in Houston traffic. Check post on page 2 for any other info.

Sorry - I'm not familiar with "HHR" fans. Could you give more detail?

I think he is talking about the Chevy HHR, their answer to the PT Cruiser.

3000cfm not enough? Im wanting to add an e fan to mine, and I was looking at a 3000 cfm unit from Summit Racing.
What is your reccomended cfm?

970001zj 09-23-2013 09:57 AM

over 9000

970001zj 09-23-2013 10:03 AM

really though 5000 is the stock mech rating

my mk8 is about 6000 or more on high

really though i only turned it to high a few times but i dont know what kinds of hell you guys put your cooling systems thru

so i say more than stock because i was always overheating with the stock fan and a/c on

Most everything I've seen online shows them rated at around 4000 CFM, which if I'm not mistaken is what the 3.8 Taurus fans are rated at. The biggest plus is the lower amperage draw, since the HHR fans pull less than 20 amp. They're also pretty cheap, with new ones running right around $100.

mk8 = 4000 on low and 15$

970001zj 09-23-2013 10:18 AM

but since there are few left to pick from the hhr could be the next new thing

seems like a good idea if it works
