What fan did you get? I know on the Taurus 2 speed fans the high mode can pull up to 40 amps so you really need to go with a 50-70 amp circuit breaker.

its a taurus fan, im pretty sure you can replace the relay with a bigger one, i heard they can draw up to 100 amps, its just a trial to see if the whole idea is worth it or not

Is it the one speed or the two speed? No way they can draw that much amperage. High side is around 40, I ran a 70 amp breaker on mine just to be safe.

IIRC the single speed only pulls around 30 amps so you should be ok with that kit. I got the breaker from Del City - Wiring Products and Professional Electrical Supplies

Do you have a multimeter? You can see how many amps it pulls that way.

I don't have any pictures. What I did was I just took the factory Ranger shroud, placed the efan inside and and mounted it that way.

Don't most multimeters have like a 2 or 5 amp internal fuse? You can get a nice clamp on ammeter for like $40 and not have to worry about blowing that internal fuse.
