There should be plenty of inlet area to get a 100-110% FSA on any of the available fans right now.
How large are the inlets on this bird? I would think they should be large enough to feed a TF8000 (145mm dia.) with lots of fresh air, so that would be the way to go I think, a pair of these on 10kW each should be sufficient. What kind of turbines do you plan to run, 2 x 160N ?
