slim fan question

b4 ya beat on me for loosing the stock fans, i have too. turbo is too big to clear the stockers. i got one that flows almost as much CFM.
anyway what i need to know is if i can wire this f'r to the stock fan harness so the comp. can turn it on/off.....or do i need to run it's own relay & thermostat ????? i hate wiring but can do it..lol
she's almost back on the road again woohoo.
thanks ,
steve

Never seen a slim fan that moves what the stock does or close to it , to answer your question yes you can wire into the stock wiring for the new fans

Tom got my turbo car running off of one 18" fan no cooling issues here in florida. The stock is best but I can recommend this considering its working fine turns on low speed at 200 degrees 2200 cfm and shuts off.... I never hit high speed but high speed at 2900 cfm would cool it ridiculously... But I only run distilled water and a lubricator fluid which is much better then coolant in warm areas where freezing isnt a issue.
