Try this thread. Followed it awhile back when I was debating installing one in my truck.

One of these days I'm going to do it myself, if for no other reason then to measure the cfm the fans are moving. I work in a specialty industry where I spend part of my everyday measuring cfm, and always suspected the aftermarket auto industry is misleading about what's required.

So can I just unscrew the stock fan from the wheel, leave the wheel and belt the way they are, and install the electric fans right there? Or am I missing something?

also, do I have a t-stat? pics are gone on the DIY t-stat thread and am having trouble wrapping my mind around it.
Is there a disadvantage to just having the fans on a switch?

Traditionally, when you are talking about t-stat, you are usually meaning the coolant t-stat. Not sure if you meant that or a fan t-stat.

Nothing wrong with using a fan t-stat or a switch. One's automatic, one's manual. If its manual (switch), you have to make sure you pay attention to engine temp.

buy a t-stat, the last thing you need to be doing is checking your coolant temp every 30 seconds. their cheap and easy to install.
