Anyone have any experience with this kit which is advertised in the lates issue of tha Avanti magazine. The fan is supposed to be what some GM high performance cars use. I was wondering if it is a replacement fan and fan clutch or an add on electric fan? The picture is not clear at all as to what is included. Just currious as my Avanti tends to run a little hot with all the stock components with a recored radiator. The shift console gets preety warm on a hot day also.

The shifter console is cooled by installing a couple 1.5 (est) inch flex tubes from the fresh air intake under the wind shield and extending them to the console. Nothing mechanical involved. If your car doesn't have the intake under the front glass you can pull it from somewhere else..
