Only 1, electrical fans!

2 davis craig 10" fans and a davis craig temp sensor will set you back about $250 and keep just about any 6 on the planet nice and cool. If you feel the need 2 12" fans would be about $350.

My favourite way to get them is online through http://www.vpwmailorder.com otherwise most auto parts stores will have/order them for you.

where do you direct the airflow towards the engine or radiator?

make sence, wasnt sure because the description of the thermal switch says "A Thermal Switch is a temperature device which senses the temperature of the radiator and turns on the electric fan when cooling is needed."

The temp sensor sits in the top radiator hose and allows you to set what temp you want the fans to kick in at. On a normal 20 degree day, most of the time the fans don't run, they just turn on every now and then, mainly when you are sitting still.

I prefer 2 10" fans. For the amount you spend buying a 12" or a 14" fan the 2 10's are a better buy IMO. Mainly because they can cool both halves of the radiator and if your really keen you can buy 2 temp sensors and run the 2 indepenently, just set the one on the return side of the radiator at a higher temp so it runs as a backup.
