Looking at getting a fal fan for turbo clearance issues. I have a universal fan in there now and it's like 2 1/4" thick around the outside of the fan where the clearance problenm is. Can someone tell me how thick there fal fan shroud is in one of the corners of the shroud? I know the website says the fan is like 2 3/8" thick but that is the thickest point taken from the back of the motor most likely. I need to know how much thinner if any the shroud is. Thanks!

Thanks guys but I already knew that it was 2 5/8" at it's thickest point (even though I mistakenly typed 2 3/8" in my post, sorry!:eek:). My point is that the 2 5/8" dimension accounts for the fan motor and usually that sticks out alot more than the fan and shroud itself. I want to know what the thickness of the fan is around the ouside not in the middle where it is thickest and isn't a concern for my clearance problem. I need someone who has it to pop the hood and take a quick measurement of the edge of their fan shroud.

the shroud is just as thick where the motor is, as the edge of the shroud.

I'm rather certain that the silver motor plate sticks out further than the rest of the shroud. Gimme a minute, and I'll go snap some pics.

What exactly do you want measured? THe actual thickness of the shroud only, or the whole fan at its thickest point?

The thickness of the shround at it's thinnest point which is one of the flat corners of the shroud where the mounting tabs attach.
