but connectors, zip ties, extra wire jus incase,
and if you wanna be the hero then purchase a derale thermostat i think jegs.com or jc witneyt shoul have em, that will make the fan come on sooner and has its own temp censor (will need wire length to the battery),



ps, ill take the old fan off ur hands

But Wait there's more
to be a Super Hero, you can bypass the fan pulley
(since you aint gonn need it) but the kit allows you to use the existing belts, but you can buy shorter belts and get a solid hp or 2 extra
that was head ache, since no one could give me sizes soo i did the string thing and purchased like six differnt sizes

currenlty im having overheating issues, not sure if its a coolant leak or
the efk aitn blowing hard enough,
no, i did not use a external themostat (the dereale thermostat)

All i can say is do it right, and double check your work i have seen bad things happen from bad wiring with electric fans! but its worth it to kill that parasitic loss! :thumbup:

We did one at a GTG,it was a pita. Pull the front off,remove radiator shroud to drill
the mounts. No writeup,not sure if Dubaholic has pics. Try to PM him.

BUT THATS IT AS FAR AS TOOLS
I USED ZIP TIES INSTEAD OF THE METAL BRACKET
AND I HAD TO MAKE A FEW HOLES TO SNAKE THE TIES

AND YES IT REPLACES THE OEM FAN
ITS ELECTRIC AND YOU GET TO USE THE SAME BELTS

Just an update the car wasnt overheating, it was acutally the oil light
thats was blinking and nothing to do with the efk.
