**Contiguous U.S. only.
- Shipping & Returns
Doghouse Fan Shrouds use a wider, 36mm fan (part number 113119031B) to push more air through the shroud than earlier models. Make sure to use the appropriate sized fan to maximize the cooling benefits of the doghouse shroud.
NOTE: 36 Horse Power refers to the style and shape of the fan shroud. This fan shroud is made for 1300-1600cc Type 1 based aircooled engines. As it is an aftermarket made piece it will not fit as well as original tin. No aftermarket tin will, period. If you want a factory fit, use the original factory pieces.
Aftermarket fan shrouds may have a gap at either side at the cylinder shrouds. The EMPI Aluminum Shroud Spacer Kit can be installed to ensure a tight fit for proper cooling.
What Fan Shroud Should I order?Fan shrouds are one of the most incorrectly ordered items we sell simply because they look identical when viewed from an open decklid. Please be sure to examine the rear of your fan shroud and check how your oil cooler attaches and order the corresponding fan shroud.
Upright Style: Oil Cooler sits inside fan shroud, and is inline with the fan.
Chrome Finish Disclaimer:We put this notice on all chrome products, regardless of manufacturer, or origin.
The saying, "They don't make 'em like they used to" falls true for many things today and chrome plated products are no exception.
Chrome products made today don't go through the same preparation and plating procedures they did 50 years ago. Many of the good, budget-friendly metal prep chemical contained cyanide and mercury. As such, they have been banned for environmental and safety reasons.
This causes the chrome finish to pit or rust quicker if it is not maintained properly. We recommend the following maintenance below to protect your chrome products:
- Hubcaps - Spray paint the inside with paint or rust inhibitor, wax chrome finish regularly
- Bumpers - Spray paint the inside with paint or rust inhibitor, wax chrome finish regularly
- Exterior Mirrors - Lightly wax chrome finish regularly
- Exterior Chrome Trim - Lightly wax chrome finish regularly
