I'm looking to replace my current fan setup with an electric fan. Can anyone recommend a good setup for a reasonable price. Not looking to sink a ton of money into this change if I don't have too. Just want to make a strong change for the $$. :eyebulge:

Thanks

I really like my Zirgo fan. I got it on ebay I think for around $120 total or maybe less.

If I could do it over again I'd probably invest it into a fan like black magic.

A lot of people have had success with junkyard fans from Taurus and Mark VIII cars.

You need to upgrade your alternator to atleast 95 amps (130 amp+ is best).

I'm currently using a pro form setup from summit racing. I have not had it on the car long but it seems to be doing fine so far.

The factory two speed fan from a 96 or so Cobra works very well.

www.50resto.com sells PA Performance alternators. Ebay has them also. To put on 95+amp alternator there is a small section you need to grind out on the alternator bracket but thats no real problem.

Yeah, the PA alts are a nice bit of work. Definate must have if going to an electric fan. I can turn on every accessory on my car and the amp needle doesent even twitch.
Heres a good article, I'm using it as a base for adding a fan in the near future: Here

I used 2 HYUNDIA electric fans. 2 30 amp relays (1 for each fan) than a toggle switch to power on and off. Plan on installing the "temp sensor" this coming weekend for them. Cools very well.

Have not had a bit of problem. I have them on a toggle switch mainly for the track. Cool down faster that way.

I bought a used Lincoln MArk VIII fan off ebay for $40 and then used the dccontrol variable speed controller to run it - very nice setup and it looks very stock..........
