Stocklook said:what kind of power can be expected from this, and how much cooler will it run compared to stock system
ibthumpin said:Hitman - where did you get your VSC's? I ask because they are the heavier duty, 40amp units (have the four heatsinks) and as I'm told arent as readily availible as the regular 30amp VCS's. the 30 amp versions are the ones packaged as a "kit" with all the wiring and such. Flex-a-lite tells me that the 40amp unit comes with thier dual fan setups and its not offered in kit form.
My 30amp VSC recently quit driving my LS1 fans, would blow fuse on startup, so now I'm jsut running one fan. After calling Flex, I found out about this heavier duty unit.

bggrnchvy said:I have an OBS vortec 5.7, could I get some LS1 fans and retrofit them to work? Would they provide enough cooling capacity for the slightly larger displacement motor(I don't know if it puts out more heat than a 5.3 or not)? I would love to spend ~$100 to have an electric fan setup with a manual control, it would be very beneficial offroading.
bggrnchvy said:What kind of driving do you do? City? Highway? If I do this I don't want to have inadequate fans for off roading. My temp never goes above 210 degrees when wheeling now, so Id like to pick up the hp and mostly tq.
