Again, an assumption with no basis. The main reason I posted these is they are, without a doubt, a LOT more efficient than the Corvair blower simply because these engines are meant to deliver their rated output continuously. And that number is WAY higher than the continuous rating of a Corvair engine! And why stick with the vertical fan axis? This one can be driven without the twisted belt.

Looks like about 2-1 overdriven. 
So at 2500 x 2 = 5000 fan rpm the big one can dissipate the cooling waste heat of a 93 HP Diesel.
