    I went over the DIY from either the member here or on TN and decided this winter to tackle an electric fan switch! Was looking over his install and seemed very tedious and just stumbled across this!

    http://www.toyotacatalog.net/M1WebG...UniqueID=D77E2B8D-E400-4221-AACA-AE550FFCEF30

    This seems like it will make the switch so much easier!

    Is the fan big enough? Is the airflow good?

    If anyone has any insight or a good place to further look for components to fullfill this task I am all ears!

    Looks like a good kit. They include everything you need. I have heard electric fans are no good for wheeling though since they can get clogged up by mud but then again so can a mechanically driven one.

    How much of a performance gain do you guys think you can get from this?

    i asked them about this says the gains are around an intake or exhaust ~ 5 hp
    which isnt bad for the 4 bangers, we can take anything we can get :)

    ^thanks for the link!

    For you local guys ill keep you updated with the install...the more there the better!

    I personally would be happy with some power from this but really want to do this more for hopefully letting the engine relax a little more and if power follows that's a plus! My 4 banger works pretty damn hard and I feel he would like this!

    Any more links and posts for me to look into are always appreciated!

    how about you go to a local junkyard and pull out a thunderbird fan like i did and i'll just sell u the bracket i made then you go to autozone and buy a fan controller and radio shack to round out the goodie bag and you do this switch for under 200:) and you can even add a switch to kill it if ur ever in mud or water and a little indicator light so you can know when it kicks in

    Thats why i posted! Can you post some pics when you get a chance of your setup inside the bay and then post up some more info on your bracket and what your using and a controller and whatnot!

    The question I have for this is does the Tbird fan move enough air? A popular mechanical to electric fan swap on Rangers uses the Taurus fan.

    it's a bracket i made out of some 1/8" flat bar and painted red. I't bolts onto the stock points for the shroud and the fan slides down into and then mounts to the bracket. you can use this for a controller from jegs http://www.jegs.com/i/Flex-a-lite/400/31147/10002/-1 and use two 30 amp relays from radioshack. . . now for the downsides, you need at least a basic amount of electrical knowledge just enough to make the connections with crimp connectors and this is a big stinkin fan it's for the 4.6 v8 so you could go with a smaller fan and only need one relay and we could work something out for the bracket. you send me the cash to go pull out the fan at a junkyard and i build you a bracket(don't worry no nigerian princesses in need of financial assistance)
