Ding, Ding, Ding...We have a winner! Change that, it is your biggest/real problem. Other things may help or hurt a bit, however the WAY underdriven waterpump is the REAL problem. Lorne

Now to wire it up and see how it works out.

That baking pan is going to create a problem it will trap heat against the rad. my sunbird has a vega rad that a rad shop modified and added an extra core to so I'm told it's now a 3 core, I have a normal monza fan in the car and it runs 180-190 ish. your rad looks thicker than mine honestly if I was you I'd take the electric fans out and put a normal fan on it. (and as others said swap out that pully for the right one)

Yep, I had mentioned earlier that I think you are going to have a air flow problem with the baking pan shroud. You have effectively limited the air flow to the opening size of the two fans which is considerably less than the total area of the radiator. You can try it and see what happens.... It does look real nice but I am not sure about the results you are going to get.

Lose the pan. Install the fans directly on the rad with a couple of these kits.
