I used a 6.5 or 7'' SPAL fan (about 600 cfm if I recall), made some custom tabs to mount to the front of the cooler. You will need to re-position the horns, or replace with smaller units, I made a bracket to reposition the original horns which gave enough room to mount the fan. Not a difficult job.
I also made a shroud to channel air so it doesn't exit below the cooler. Wired it to a lighted switch on the dash for manual operation, no thermostat. Worked pretty well, and helped in slow traffic.
Unfortunately, it got destroyed when I crashed, so don't have any pics.
