Can I add a second fan?

Hi,

first of all, I was wandering, why apple put 2 cooling fans into 13 inch macbooks with Touchbar, but put only one to the one with function keys? Anyone know why? And is it a dealbreaker? And if so, can you a add second fan to it? Thanks for answers

There's no room to put in a second fan.

Note the differences in the 13" model CPUs:

Very different CPU's (performance). As if thats a deal breaker for you then you'll need to get the model with the dual fans. But you would give up the removable SSD drive.
