Hello Damon,

Those are the correct size blowers you are getting. I have the same type. =

If you remote mount them and if you have the room, bolt the square output t=

one side of the radiator support section or on to a panel that can be bolte=
d =

some where else.

I went to a auto parts store and bought a 6 inch carb air cleaner housings =

and fasten them to the round input section of the blower.

For a hose take off, I use standard 2 inch diameter pvc pipe fittings that =
I =

glue to a plastic flat plate that bolted to the square section of the fan. =

You then can run standard pvc air hose to your motor which you have to make =

another adapter to fit the hose.

Use the standard air hose for the air input and only use a thicker 1/4 pvc =

flex hose for exhausting battery exhaust fumes. These fumes will eat up th=
e =

thinner standard air hose in no time.

You can get these air hoses and heavy duty pvc air hoses up to 1/4 inch =

thick which is normally use for vacuum systems from the Home Depot or other =

industrial hard ward stores.
