Needing some information on some fan assemblies... We are trying to find some that move air better than the cheapies on the web... I know that the OEM Factory fans do really good... The radiator core area measurement is 25"wide by 16" tall and I haven't found a good source to pull dimensions from to try to find something that will work.. Right now we have a 14" pusher and a 16" puller on the radiator, the ones you see all over the web that everybody sells, and the car will slowly get hotter and will settle at about 200*F, but we are trying to cool a large engine too..... any help will be appreciated!

check out the late 90's Ford Contour dual electric fan w/ shroud. Around 100 bucks from rockauto. might fit that radiator pretty well.

I have a 4 core copper brass and a pair of flexalite fans on my truck 582 bbc engine. Never even thinks about getting hot. It has a 170 degree t-stat and running the teetotal piss out of it on a hundred degree day it never got over 175 degrees. The rad is tall and wide and the fan kit was made to fit it. Rad wasn't too expensive but the fans were close to $600. Imo worth every penny.

Look into a set of LS1 fans, I run a Lincoln setup and the LS fans supposedly blow more and draw less amps. The Lincoln one I have it eats amps.

Check out the fan setup from a 2000 Chevy Malibu. The shroud is rectangular with dual fans and can be easily adapted to fit custom applications using simple hand tools. I got lucky and scored one for nothing.
