    Can someone direct to a write-up on how to install the windstar fans, because I don't have a clue what to do about the wiring.

    Thanks

    Heres a link to my friends setup on his Chevelle.

    BTW Sandman, are you going to have both fans auto switched or leave the small (right) fan run constantly to provide cooling for the trans cooler?

    I just went to the local auto-electric store and bought some Bosch 50A relays. Autozone carrys 20A relays but think they are marginal.
