There is a limit on how much air that can go thru a radiator. Also in my opinion, having a fan in front of the radiator, actually limits that amount of air that can pass to only what the fan can push.
Like was said, you need to look at the cause of the overheating problem. If you dont have a fan shroud, get one. Have the radiator checked for proper flow. Is the radiator the right one for that set-up? Check your spark plugs to make sure the engine isn't running lean. Is the thermostat the proper one for that engine/set-up? Was the engine bored out too far for that block? Is there too much grille blocking air getting to the radiator? Find the cause of the problem, then you can fix it.
Overheating is a symptom of another problem. Don't treat the symptom, fix the problem.

What have you done to figure out why it's running hot at high RPM's? What kind of motor? Is it Stock? Does it have a fan shroud now? Is it running lean which will cause it to run hot? Just some info we need to know...

|jo5hi3||but see the prob i am having is keeping the motor cool at high rpms so i was going to get a pusher and a puller. would doing this help to keep my motor cooler then just a puller?|

Magnum is correct. The best combination would be a puller electric fan mounted on the engine side of the radiator with a shroud. You could leave the engine driven fan on if you want but all you will be doing is using horsepower to drive it. It won't help in cooling the motor with the setup I've described.

i was wondering if i put an electric cooling fan infront on my radiator and have the one from the motor behind the radiator if it would run cooler then it does with just the one behind the radiator?
