    That's nice. Did you do the welding or have a shop do it for you?

    On 78 TA, I used a dual fan setup from a LT1 vehicle,with a radiator mounted sensor,just installed Derale(sp) controler had to tap the water jacket on the intake for the sensor,on the 79 Camaro I swapped in a LS2 with all fan and radiator and is computer controled,the mounting of the fan was easy just made some slots for the shroud to slip into

    I found a great deal on a fan, $60 and free shipping. The lady at the place was kind of a b**ch and said no warranty no return. When I asked if it was returnable if it wasn’t as advertised, she said nope. When I asked if it was tested, she said we wouldn’t be selling it if it didn’t work. Someone needs to send her the definition of customer service and a self help book!

    We have a nice dual controller set up, and also that shroud can be used with our closout panel for a really clean instalation with a slight bit of modification. We also make a nice dual fan set up. here is a link to our cooling stuff

    I purchased a fan and it’s on its way but I still need a controller, yours looks interesting and it appears to be priced well. Is it dual control or single control with two fans? I’d prefer staging the fans. What kind of current will the relays take and are they plugin? I’ll be using a dual fan setup out of a 2002 5.7l Firebird.

    The more that I read, the more I want to do a PWM control. There are a lot of guys doing this with inexpensive OEM modules but they use the ECM to drive it. Heck for $30 you can do it but I’ve got to find something that can take an external probe. I’ve also seen pwm Controls aftermarket for a bit over $100. I keep thinking of the the few guys at the cruise that roll in with their electric fans running full tilt as they drive through.

    My DCC controller is PWM. works great, I rarely hear the fans run. And they almost never run at full speed. 10 years and counting on it.
