    Or if you can custom your own intake for the turbo then work your way around it. Other then that I see no other way. I think it is one way or the other. I have a fluidyne radiator with the FAL fan and it clear with my 2.5 intake for my turbo. Think about it.

    If you check the honda-tech sponsor forum there are a bunch of stores selling slim fans for cheap. It's $50 for a 12" $40 for 10". 10" flows 12-1400cfm and 12" flows 1600cfm. (I'm pretty sure the stock fan pulls 750cfm). Both do push or pull and they both have free shipping on vsracing.net/store.
