Heck yah, and they free up horsepower, too. No problem, specially with alcohol.

I use one, it cools better than the six blade fan that I was using.

I have a friend that is a certified master mechanic. He showed me a simple trick.
Take a lite cigarette and hold it in front of the grill with the engine running.
If the the smoke gets sucked into the grill then the fan works fine. If not then maybe a spacer or shroud will fix the problem.
