This well prepared MGBGTV8 conversion seen at Snetterton last weekend had many well engineered modifications including a large cooling fan mounted in a floor panel between the radiator and engine block forming part of a duct around and under the radiator. The effect of this fan was to remove a large volume of hot air from the engine bay and improve the flow through the radiator matrix thereby improving cooling when the engine becomes hot from either hot ambient temperatures and slow road speeds when in traffic.
