you need temperature sensor inline to the input of rad that will activate a 12V relay for the fan. Find a fan, wire the 12V power lead to the ouput of the 12V relay. For the input you need 12V fused from the battery +ve terminal, and the control input being the thermal sensor inline of the input to the rad.



Done.

theres no hp gain in switching to electric fan, it would only be suggested if your oem fan is broken or you need the space in the engine bay
