Tomorrow I will be putting in a Perma-Cool fan (16inch High Performance) with a 170 deg thermostat. It says I can run a wire to the fuse box to get power, But I really don't want to do this, Would just running a line to the starter solenoid be ok? (my battery is in the trunk) I know it would make the fan run for little while after it was shut off, But I know some cars do this from the factory. Also is anyone else running a electric fan? If so how has it worked out for you and can you tell any differences, Thanks in advance.

I have a later model radiator that is much larger so I have more space. I run two 10 inch electric fans. They are the Summit
hi-po ones.

I wired them directly to the battery in the trunk and did them so I can turn them on any time I want manually or they turn on automatically when the motor gets over 180.

set up a relay to run the fan so you dont overload the the switch. this way it almost doesnt matter where you get the power for the relay as it will be very small amounts.
