My Fan is starting to give me the shits, Im thinking of installing Thermo's, JBolger, how hard are the EF ones to wire up?! I'm thinkin if they're beyond me I'l just run a switch into the cabin, turn them on when I see the guage getting warm...
Unless it's a seriously easy installation, I wouldn't do it myself - but if it wouldn't require much labour time, it wouldn't cost much to get the auto electricians to wire it up. Any details appreciated... :)

would removint the clutch fan, and fiting a thermo fan make any difference in the power put to the rear wheels. I ask this cos there would be less load on the engine and intern put more of the power down the drivetrain ? im not saying it'll increase engine power, but put more of the power to the wheels. please correct me if im wrong.
I have heard that comment about the ‘Skyline’ still using the clutch fan about a million times. There two totally different engines.
Have you considered the fact that the old EA 3.9 tends to generate a fair bit of heat (more then the Skyline), and basically uses a relatively small radiator in it's cooling system.
This means that the clutch fan of the EA is used much more often then that of the Skyline.
If the clutch fans were so good, why don't they use them in the EF-AU series????
Replacing a clutch fan with thermo fans in the EA should have a noticeable power increase at times where the clutch fan would usually be engaged.
That’s just my $3.50
