Not sure what type of e-fan i should get for my 89 s10. Going to be buying from summit racing but im not sure what diameter/cfm rating i should go with. also how would i go about taking the stock clutch fan off? Also, do all of the e-fans come with all the wiring needed to install it or do i need to buy that separate?

why waste money? all the original OEM efans are better than the aftermarket ones. go grab one from a junkyard somewhere. you'll save alot of money too.

early to mid 90s i think

i think the one i got was either 93 or 94 i honestly cant remember

i also got one out of a van, the one im currently using is a dual fan setup that covers the whole entire radiator. i love it. out of a mopar van of some sort...

i think even the ford contour fans would be a good choice, i saw 2 contours with dual fan setups but i couldnt gain enough access to them to get them out...

If you want to go with Ford fans - I suspect the preferred units are nine-bladed models from 90-95 Taurus, Sable or Continentals equipped with 3.8L engine.

These are two speed fans, with shroud. They move lots of air and demand higher than average current when running on high.

If you want to buy new Summit carries a Flexalite S10 specific fan. I have it on my Blazer and has been on 2 previous 4 banger trucks. I used to have one on my 92 Blazer as well. It has all the mounts and wiring and instructions to properly hook it up.

The Lincoln Mark VIII is pretty much the holy grail of junkyard upgrade fans, at least as far as Fox-body Mustang guys are concerned. Dunno if the shroud would be too big to fit on an S10/Blazer radiator or not, but they definitely move a LOT of air, have two speeds (lotta guys never even have to use the higher speed), and you can get replacement motors for them at most parts auto stores for a decent price. Usually run around $40 on average at most boneyards.
