E-fan questions...

Alright, say I had a 16" e-fan and mounting kit laying around.... What's the part I need for the thermostat that triggers the fan? Something that can be ordered online?

I'm thinking about popping this in here real soon, and also wiring in the fan to be triggered manually in case the switch doesn't work for any given reason at any time...

Anyone have any directions to point me towards?

i got a temperature switch for a efan at my local napa. could have got it cheaper online but this way i could get it the same day. it is this little controller that has a temp probe you stick in your rad, and a little dial on it you turn to adjust what temp the fan comes on at...basically you run power into it and out ot it to the fan and the dial adjusts what temp it completes the circuit. it was like 40 bucks...o and i ran a relay too instead of just going through the dial thing...even tho the directions that came with it said to just go straight through it...

Not sure if that would really be up to cooling, 3000 CFMs is kind of low. I think the Taurus dual speed e-fan runs at 5500-6000 on the high side.

here is a quality fan, and a great seller. He really hooked me up for my ranger. Nice products too

Comes with everything you need and instructions. He can make you a shroud too which helps
