I haven't had much luck with Griffin. This is the second. The first leaked. Summit replaced it. The second leaked as well in the same place as the first just out of warranty. I had a local shop repair it late last year. So far it's ok, but it may be just a matter of time before it does once again. I'm not duprised that the fans are such low flowing.

My dilemma is either to go ahead and work with what I have as the CFM of both together should be ok, or upgrade the fans alone hoping the radiator holds out. I've spent quite of time ensuring it's mounted with vibration and isolation in mind.

The SS radiator mounts sort of oddly if I was to try and locate the whole thing to try. Plus, who knows how that controller would get along with my E67. The SS is an E38 I believe.
Good info here:

So the plan for now is working with what I have. I'll use the Fusion controller and harness to run both of my smaller Spal fans together. They would flow just under 1900 CFM at max over most of the core. I'll see what happens.

My plan is to take power for the controller from a stud in my engine bay that is wired directly to my trunk mounted battery. This is would be a short 4.5' run to the controller. While I'd like to use a single Jcase fuse and 10 awg wire, I can't find one I like. I do have a 60A Maxi fuse and holder that I will use for now. Coming out of the controller, I was contemplating using a distribution block that will wire the two fans. I was thinking of further fusing these two at that block with smaller fuses(30A each), but this may be redundant. I do feel that these would blow much quicker should the need arise over the 60A upstream.

Any thoughts?

I'd keep it simple and just use a single 50-60 amp fuse.

Definitely like the KISS method. Iím going to try the 50 and see what happens. On a whim, I have an SS sedan fan assembly coming to check out as well.

The SS fan arrived today. The module does accept the Yazaki connector. Here are some pics in case anyone is interested in sizing:
