Type 1 fan shroud for t4 cooler   Price: 299 USD
COOLED, a division of GDP, is proud to announce a first for the Air Cooled VW market! A properly produced, stamped, performance type 1 upright fan shroud that features several improvements over the stock VW unit.

-Smoothed face (no impression for factory oil-bath style air cleaner.
-Less holes in the face.
-Velocity ring to increase airflow to the fan and oil cooler.
-Modified for type 4 oil cooler (2 extra rows of cooling)
-Includes both exit ducts, ready for the type 4 cooler (no extra work!)
-All internal vanes and ducts are an exact duplicate of a factory late model (Mexican) shroud.
-Finished in electrostatic paint. A good paint-able low gloss black. Similar to what is on a factory VW shroud.

There are 2 versions of this shroud available.

-Cooled 1.1: Type 1 with heater outlets, and with thermostat compatibility
-Cooled 1.2: Type 1 without heater outlets and with thermostat compatibility (this is commonly referred to as the THING shroud)

These shrouds are compatible with factory thermostat, a first for an aftermarket shroud. They are also compatible with type 1 or type 4 oil coolers. Most 1776 and larger CC engines should take advantage of the extra cooling the type 4 cooler can provide. In most cases engines up to 2180cc require no additional cooler (No more messy lines and cooler!)

These shrouds are produced from 100% percent new tooling. There are 27 individual stamped pieces to a fan shroud like this, all with tooling for pressing, cutting and jigs to assemble. I spent 3 full years, with 4 failed factories before arriving at the product you see here. This should answer the question "why hasn't someone done this until now?"

Nothing like this shroud is currently on the market. There are lots of “36hp” style, which are a major disadvantage in cooling performance, even over a factory unit. There are also Fiberglass kits, which do not have a proper design for proper velocity at the intake side, and are not a true solution for the enthusiast looking for a long-term solution to cooling his properly built motor.
