So you are using a X3 fan that is a 600w in your application, but the only issue is the clearance in the top?

the 600w fan is very powerful. it will make a difference to the cooling system for sure. and maybe some engine performance by losing the parasitic drag of the clutch fan. i'll need to take off the bumper and remove the aux fan at some point also.
