Before our first drive, which admittingly by the looks of it appears to still be a little far in the future, we want to make sure that all the essentials are installed and functioning so we can safely take the sedan on it’s maiden voyage.
There are many ways you can wire in your aftermarket electrical fans, but this is the most straight forward method we could come up with if you have existing fan wiring in your car. This SPAL fan is a single stage, so you will lose the Normal/High speed functionality the stock fan offers. However, this aftermarket fan is quieter and more efficient.
Also, Pusher vs Puller? Puller fans are more efficient, but we just simply could not fit one between the radiator and our engine…even the slim ones. Hence, we went with a pusher fan. If you have the room however, we recommend a puller fan.
Quick recap of the task:
– Use the High speed fan wiring / Relay
– Fan wiring on body, BRN wire is ground, GRN/BLK is high speed
– Adapt your Spal fan wiring to your stock wire plug
– Use temp switch 6131136427282 which is 82 degree 2 prong
– Temp switch wiring, use GRN/BLK and BRN/BLK
– (BLK wire is for normal speed)
