Yeah good luck with a pc fan, unless it's not a pc fan that i'm thinking of.

You'd be better off to find a medium sized e fan.

Re: Ditching the heater box....

i would take my had and put it next to ure pc where the fan is, and u can barely feel the air flow. i would go back to the drawing boards and think up of some other fan. Google will prolly be ure best bet on finding a fan to produce the flow yet still be fairly small.

Re: Ditching the heater box....

as i was reading ure post i had the hotrod heater box idea pop in my head then read ure line. lol. but the most CFM i found from a PC fan was only about 500CFM. and when u put that into something as big as our heater boxes it will still amount to nothing. i would maybe go to the local u pick it yard and see about just finind a small car with a small blower and make a box to work.

Nevermind. I just saw you have a blazer... my electric heater barely heats up my STD cab.

Vintage Air sells heaters with or without defrost that are small and will fit in 1/2 the space as your original, and they work. Check them out on line or call 1-800-to cool u. Just sayin'.
