One of our biggest pet peeves is convincing customers of the importance of a fan shroud when upgrading their cooling fans.
To put it bluntly: you are simply NOT utilizing the maximum cooling potential of your radiator if the fans are not shrouded (or the shroud doesn't cover the entire cooling fin area of the radiator).
These Mishimoto fans are designed to ensure maximum airflow through the entire surface area of your radiator. This will keep your car cooler than a shroudless setup and has the added benefit of protecting your fans from damage (or damaging surrounding components).
These fans are also covered under Mishimoto's outstanding Limited Lifetime Warranty, which includes accident protection, for "pay-once-and-forget-it" peace of mind!
