Default Re: radiator fan efficiency

"remove the shroud" ? I have noticed in Street Rod magazine for years that most all builds include a fan shroud. These guys are running high HP engines with minimal frontal air intake and are focusing the airflow to cool the block.
How could it possibly hurt our 40HP Model A to use the same thinking?
Ford started out with the shroud and then dropped it in early 1929, was this just a manufacturing cost thing?
