    This is a pretty sweet setup TheHulk! How much did it cost you to make this setup?

    Ok, I don't know what happened, the first time I clicked the link for the wiring harness, it brought me to one for $145! Looked like the prices had sky-rocketed since the original post. The next time it brought me to a different page with one for like $28. :wtf:

    The price for the Proomp fans seemed to have gone up too. Your link now brings you to a page for a 16" fan, and the price is $65 each. Looking at your install, I won't be able to use those, because the tab on each side would force the outer tabs to hang off the shroud. Unless I could turn them one way or the other to allow for clearance. Wouldn't look as be as pretty as your's, but the flat edge is at the bottom, and noone would see that anyway. Hayden makes a 14" fan though, sells for about $60. These would be perfect, and if they sell a similar design in a 16" fan, I could probably fit them on the drip pans.

    Unless I missed it, you didn't provide dimensions on the drip pans. These look like the right ones, but I want to confirm the size though.

    I don't know what you used for your fan controller, but this one seems like it would work, and it's adjustable, so I could run a little cooler if I choose. Don't see how the hell I can adjust it though! :wtf:Must be the white dot in the blue square.

    Then ofcourse I need that Rigid industries harness at the top.

    If that is all I need, and I figured it out correctly, that will put me at right around $200. Ok. I think that's all the questions I have for you at this time! :waytogo:

    I not had any problems with this setup since I installed it and would recommend all of these components. If you go with different fans I would stick with 14" because the move plenty of air and fit well.

    Thank you very much brother! I have put all these items in my wish list on Amazone, for when I get ready to order. I defintely prefer electric fans over clutch fans. That's a good bit of weight sticking off the front end of the motor. Electric fans give an engine bay a much cleaner look. I think when I do it though, I'm going to paint the back/exposed side. They look great in your setup, I just want a little more original look.

    So with this setup, does it run like a typical OEM system? Like were one fan is running, and the other kicks on when the AC does?

    I'm using all the same components you are but I'm confused on how you said you wired it, and how the manufacturer says to, theirs makes no sense can you help? [​IMG][​IMG]
