    Y'all running blowers, with nitrous?

    Thats a lot of fan.

    My two off brand fans do the job just fine for me, even slowly rock crawling all day.

    The biggest fan kit I have consists of 2010-up (gasp!) Ford F-150 dual fans and my 3-speed resistor harness to handle the high amp draw these fans can pull @ full speed.

    Temps close, No AC, but humidity is the killer down here.

    I love your setup though.

    I pull AC off everything I own, does it seriously make that big a difference as far as heat?

    I,mm getting ready to install ele. fan on 94 gmc 5.7 this is wiring I came up with, It will let fan run all auto. and when AC on will shut off low speed turn on High then I can turn Off high if on Turnpike long time AND also can turn on High if needed if low can,t handle it like long pull behind a truck.
    Also bought all this for $138 [new fan] from Ford Thunderbird so will post photos later just have to mount it all now. fan diagram for Z71.jpg
