Get the ones off a LS1 Camaro, they can be found for $80-$150 bucks on ebay. The harness you can use can be found at www.nelsonperformance.com. You will need a tune I believe to activate the pins on your PCM though. Or you can go a diffrent route and do the electrical stuff yourself. I have the LS1 fans and Nelson harness, who also did my tune, so they were already active. Hope this helps a bit.

Only thing I'd add would be a larger alternator.

I could undercharge my Z at idle w/ the 105A without efans... pulling an extra 30A at idle isn't the greatest on the 105A alt.

We need to go to a junkyard around here and see if we can pull a pair of e-fans

Single blade, dual speed Taurus fans work well. Pulls nearly 5000cfm on high speed.

I ditched my stock clutch fan and threw in a set of LS1 fans for 60 bucks off ebay. Harness from nelson performance and on stock alternator. Work great

pm dlh2006 on performancetrucks. He sells the harnesses for $70 shipped and they're good quality.

Nelson harnesses are like $100 I think

The benefit of electric fans is that the engine no longer has to turn a bigass fan to cool itself. So instead the electrical system takes on that burden. With the engine having that much less drag on itself it helps with gas mileage and power.

lt1 fans work to you just have to make brackets... a drill 4 bolts and strapping alunimum will take care of this

i had 80 bucks in my old trucks fans (lt1 camaro fans)

lt1s and ls1 are the same fans just on a differnet peice of plastic for mounting
