    was looking at jeggs website and for around $280 i can get a 3 row to help cool the 347 im going to get very soon. is there any reason to get a 4 row instead? its only about $40 more. i may get it if i can make one fit. thoughts??

    The more rows it has, the more air you need to move through it, or else it will actually run hotter than a 2-row. The 2-row Champion actually cools as efficiently as the stock 3-row with the stock fan. I see no reason you would need a 4-row with a 347.

    If you are going to use a Taurus fan, the fit with a three row gets very tight. I had to get a two belt bottom pulley to make it work, but I dont have AC. I dont know anything about 5.0/serpentine set up.

    I have a 3 row with the Volvo fan, works great but clearance is really tight.

    Three row works perfectly, honestly a 2 row would be fine. Also using the Volvo fan. Required a custom shroud but it was cheap and powerful.
