Re: thermos to ED i6

Just did it myself a few weeks ago, You will need a set of fans, a thermoswitch (Someone on here does a good electric one search round), 3 relays, 2 fusilble links, plenty of wire and connectors and some coolent or water.

Edit do some searching and you will find bounty a plenty.

Re: thermos to ED i6

The BPT setup is excellent - they should be able to supply the whole lot (ie. everything including fan unit).

Re: thermos to ED i6

The advantage of EF / EL fan unit is that it pretty much drops right in where the original shroud sits (is same basic shape and almost all attachment points as the original shroud).

I didnt do it myself, but i know people that could do it for you.
Factory fans(EF/L) are the best way to go.

It's a while since I've done anything electrical, but the way I understand it, your fans come on when either the thermoswitch turns on, or the AC is running?

Where has everyone else put their thermoswitches?

Mine switch sits behind my airbox, the sensor runs into the top radiator hose.
