    So Ive looking in to getting a new rad cuz mine just isnt cutting it. Its come down to these two: eBay Motors: CXRacing Radiator Civic 92-00 DEL SOL B18 MT + 12" fan (item 370131989628 end time Jan-16-09 17:00:00 PST)

    eBay Motors: CXRacing Radiator Kit CIVIC DEL SOL B18 B16 Shroud Fan (item 390022624773 end time Jan-14-09 16:39:45 PST)

    The first does not have a shroud and the other one does. Does anybody thinnk that small shroud makes that big of a difference? Don't really feel like spending an extra $50 for nothing. Any suggestions would be great!!

    The shroud helps the fan pull air through the entire area of the radiator. Pretty much makes the fan more efficient(helps a lot when the car isn't moving).

    Yea I know the purpose of the shroud. But this one doesnt look like it would do much.
