One thing we tend to forget- we operate these motors over a wide RPM range.
So you need to figure out what engine RPM  range you want to optimize 
fan performance at, select fan drive ratios for that, and then determine 
if fan performance is ok over the rest of the RPM range.
If not, adjust and recompute.
