How do you like that FF Dynamics kit?

I have been eyeing that one and it sounds like a good kit for the price.

They are working great. Easy to install. I mounted them to a custom fan shroud I had made by Cool Craft. I just don't like the idea of mounting them directly to the radiator. At 3000 cfm for both fans they draw a boatload of air through the rad.

Currently I have them wired to a toggle switch. But I do have a sensor kit from Speedway I am going to wire up so the fans go on automatically. I will be keeping the toggle as my emergency override.

Re: Electric Fan

that is the bees damn knees right there! So how much did THAT setup cost you.. everything included? I may get the taurus fan for the time being and then get that once the new engine is in and I start replacing the function parts for pretty functioning parts.

Have a link to that wiring kit?

Glad you like it. The shroud ran me $150 from Cool Craft. The fan set up was $220.00 from FF Dynamics.
The wiring kit with sensor is from Speedway Motors PN 91064028 it gives you the option to choose the sensor temp to turn the fans on. Here's the link: http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Spal-T...-Kit,5350.html
In order to use the sensor I also bought an Auto Meter hose adapter PN ATM-2282 from Summit Racing. I used this to have a spot for the sensor.
Here's the link for that:

Re: Electric Fan

EXCELLENT! I was going to try to find an oem piece to put a sensor INLINE with the hose. So basically $500.00. Going to start saving for it.

Re: Electric Fan

It was well worth the investment. As the warmer weather approaches I will be able to see where the temp runs. Right now it is consistantly running at 190-195.

Yeah about what mine runs at. My taurus fan runs on the low speed just constantly so i hope when it gets really hot it can still keep up.

Re: Electric Fan

My e-fan runs good. It keeps my temperatures below 200 and runs whenever the A/C is running. Although mine is a first gen with a 2.8L V6, this set-up will work on the 2.2L L4 also.


The major components used in the installation. Also needed was extra wire and a few connectors.


This is the schematic of the wiring to operate the fan, using the parts in pictured above.

Re: Electric Fan

I found the easiest way to get the clutch fan off.Take hammer and a long slim chizzle.get the fan centered.where you cn see the its on a flat side.Hit it right in the middle where it flat.dont het the corners.It well round the bolt off.(incase nobody knows this.) about 2 or 3 hits.i well loosen right up.You can then just take a wrench and take it on off.i done my E-fan today.A buddy come over and showed me that trick.no need for rags or needing to fowl it so it doesnt move.It that easy!!

Re: Electric Fan

I didnt tap it around.I just hit it twice dead center of the nut.then i took a wrench and just screwed it on off.No problem.After I hit it,it almost fell off.Im using that 12inch fan.Its keeping my engine cool.Its 2000 cfm.Does real good.I bought it from gearheadworld.com it was $33.50 free shipping.A great little fan.It has 2000 cfm,If anybody is looking for a fan give ie a try..Its doing me great.It pulls 8 to 10 amps.madjack told me the wireing harness to buy.So far perfect. (THANKS MADJACK)

Re: Electric Fan

I forgot to mention the radiator hose adapter for the sensor:

http://www.jegs.com/i/Auto+Meter/105/2283/10002/-1

I just spliced it into the radiator hose and attached the black wire to a ground The temp switch connects to ground at the preset temp., then opens at the off temp. (200* on, 185* off in my application.)

BEAVER50, no problem. That's what these sites are for. As for the fan you got, compare it to the specs of the one I'm using:

JEGS Performance Products #555-52105 S-Blade Universal Electric Cooling Fan
16'' Diameter
1950 CFM
13.1 Amp Draw

Your smaller fan is rated to move more air and draw less amperage, that's why I kept saying to try it. If you do find it's not enough when the weather gets hotter, try a second fan catty-corner to the first. The wiring harness/relay will handle it, it's rated for 30 Amps.

Re: Electric Fan

Hey all,

If you guys want a cool looking a very functional e-fan kit for a decent price then look at www.dts2.net and get a hold of David there. I just ordered one from him Sat and am waiting to get it this week. He was really cool to talk to and very helpful with what I wanted to do with my 03 2.2 I also ordered the rad support he has which looks pretty cool, can't wait to install that kit along with the asp pulleys I ordered last week. I thought this might help....

When I talked to him sat night he did say that he is working on having it redone sometime soon. He has been tied up finishing the twin turbo kit he's been trying to release this month it sounded like.

so what size do we need? In the link above for summit you have the 1.25" and the Jegs you have 1.5". If you can, can you post up the correct size? I want to put this in my order today.

Re: Electric Fan

I used the 1.5", but I have the 2.8L V6 in my S10. My Cavalier with the 2.2L has 1.25" hose, but it already has an e-fan from the factory. So, the hose size may very well be different. The fan in the Cavalier is 14" s-blade.

The Summit link wasn't mine, that was jraney.

Re: Electric Fan

AHhhh.. hmm. I found a link last night with the size as 1.25" also for the upper hose. I didn't get it due to needing to hold back on the efan for the time being.

Re: Electric Fan

I just got my e-fan and billet mounting kit, just waiting for my billet upper radiator to come so I can install it all with the flex-a-fan vsc controller. I can't wait to see how the engine reacts to not having a fan to spin all the time!

I heard a comment when I was doing my front brakes from some beotch across the street.. "just take it somewhere.. you are always working on it.. take it someplace if you can't fix it".. I heard her talkin smack. She probably didn't know I could hear her. Funny what people think sometimes. Pics man.. lots o' pics.

yep that was me. I measured the ID of the hose and OD of the radiator neck to be sure it was 1.25"

Lol thats how they are out there, my neighbors use to talk smack to me out there all the time. They do it here too, But much less now cause i got a shit ton of tools and they can tell i dont mess around. My neighbor next door just give me shit cause im always tinkering w/ something. He says my truck is gonna be pretty much new. Well yeah thats the idea dumb dumb that just bought a new truck! And i dont have a car payment is what i say in return. That generally shuts them up.

Re: Electric Fan

Well it has cost allot more then I wanted to spend. After doing some research the stuff I ordered will not handle the load req. of the taurus fan. So I have to rewire the temp controller with 8 gauge wire. so all in all 100 fro the stuff from JEGS 100 for the fan and another 30 for the the 75 amp relay and 50 amp circuit breaker. 30 for the 8 gauge wire....so all in all do allot more research before you buy your stuff.....LOL But it will all be worth it once I get it all wired up.

Re: Electric Fan

When I do my efan, I am going to get a new taurus fan, get a ford dual 40am circuit breakers and rewire the ends. I want to be as factory as possible. i will get the pieces from Jegs (thermostat sleeve) but other than that.. I am going to try to use all Ford electronics for it. I will post up my "build-up" when I do this.

Re: Electric Fan

Well I have it all installed except the relay for the Ac signal.... Missing the Diode. I am very pleased with the taurus Fan, I got a new on from ebay and I opted to go with the Radiator hose adapter so I didn't have to stick anything into the radiator fins. The hardest part was finding a place to mount the relays and C/B. but I think it turned out pretty darn good VERRRRY pleased. Here is a few pics

Re: Electric Fan

Ok I cant get this ac relay to work. I wired it up according to the Jegs temp switch, my question is when will the 87a terminal have power?..... it's not getting any power at all and that is where the power is suppose to be coming from for the second relay. HELP PLEASE

Re: Electric Fan

i got a truck that has an electric fan and i have to turn a switch on and off every time. sometimes i forget to turn it on and down the road i flip it on noticing my temp going up. it is my 3rd vechicle so i always forget to turn it on.

until i get a themostat/relays and stuff....here is the question, is there a good place to get switched power under the hood?

i know this isnt the right way to power an electric fan but can someone point me to a switched 12v?

Re: Electric Fan

okay yes. I have an "open" summit racing "cart" cause I am not sure this is the right thing for a dual speed taurus fan:

I used the pink wire on the ignition coil to provide a switched signal to the fan relay. DO NOT use this to power the fans!

Use a fused wire from the battery positive to power the relay #30, then #87 out to the fans.

#86 to the pink coil wire, #85 to the temp sensor.

My Intrepid fans

Installed



$60 for the fans, another $30 for a sensor and relay.

Re: Electric Fan

awd v8

thanks but i guess since mine has 2 coil packs it may not work for me. i just want to turn the key and have the fan come on any time i drive it. a source that only has power when the eng or key is in the "on" position. i know the fans will melt wires if i get power from any where that isnt enough amperage.

as it is the toggle switch wires have turned a different color from the heat.

again. i know it isnt the way to do things but neither is turning it on and off manually. just dont want to run relays and sensors and stuff that i still have to worry about. if i could find a fan blade to buy i would just do that. parts houses only sell the v6 blades and the jy doesnt have any....... screw a couple hp. i got an integra to run hard

Re: Electric Fan

I decided to get this unit: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/FLX-31163/

So a 3.8L fan, not the 3.0 correct? I want to get that ordered so I can get it in. Need the engine power right now.
