Default A Few Final Radiator/Fan questions

I ordered a new CXRacing Radiator, and i have 2 12in slim fans to go with it.
i got the slim fans because my drivers side fan was rubbing my FMIC piping..
now i was wondering what would be my best option, as the new radiator does have the stock mounting points.

should i swap out both stock fans for the 2 12in slim rans with out any shrouds?

just swap the drivers side fan with the slim fan to clear the IC pipe and leave the stock pass. side fan?

or make my own shroud like this one(below) and use both slims fans?

i dont like the looks of that shroud..

it looks like it will block way too much air from moving through the core. i would use the slim fans, but mount them differently

I would modify your piping not the rad as it is very important to get the most cooling air pass the core.
