I agree with 930turbo. You should use the fan that is already on the engine. You should spend more time sealing the intercooler well to the wing so that all your engine cooling air must be pulled thru the intercooler. This is a mistake that many people overlook when installing aftermarket coolers.
If you just put on an electric fan and don't seal it to the tail anyway it will not do alot of good, just pull air directly in front of the fan blade diameter. You may even be able to take advantage of the high pressure area over the tail to help force more air thru it when the car is moving.
