    sup..91 Civic Si B16A...i have 2 fans against the radiator in the front of the car..when the swap was performed they rigged the therostat so that the 2 fans run all the time..do i need both of these fans..if not which one is more important then another..theres a smaller one in front of the headers..and a larger one in front of the trans..the smaller one actually prevents me from adding any aftermarket headers cuz the space is so tight..(place racing mounts)..any help would be appreciated...JR

    the smaller one in front of the headers is for air conditioning. if you dont have a/c you dont need it. When i swapped I took my a/c out, but I left the fan in to help the cooling effort a little. I have an integra with the double size radiator,both fans pull air through the rad. for mine. civics only have the half sized ones and only benefit from one.

    Rmove the A/C fisrt then remove the whole radiator and replace it with a 92 civic radiator its half the size wich gives you more space all you need is one fan.check out my sig pics.

    yea just keep the fan on the tranny side and you'll be fine. throw the other one in the stock parts pile.
