Do you have the reverse fan and cutch for the engine or are you going with an electric fan setup?

I finally ditched my gunther fan and clutch, feels like I gained 25 hp.

Only thing is the one I bought from Summit has it's own vibration that I can feel in the cab when the motor is off.

I installed a really noisy electric fan on my camaro so I went with clutched belt fan on my k20. Much quieter.

Cheezwizz LOL

I usually use bearing grease on cork or neoprene, re-torque.

These look great, will give it a try.

Thank you guys for your input, it has saved me on this project.I was able to see that extra bolt I
missed on the transmission. I also will calm down on the cheese wiz lol once I get this thing pulled up on lift I will use that gasket
