What electric fan combo do you guys use?

I'm am getting ready to buy a electric fan for my 92, I will be going turbo in the future, so I need to know what fan-radiator combo do you turbo guys use? Dont need any clearance issues down the road. Am looking at a Quicktime or HP kit.

I run a Summit radiator, with 2- 14" perma cool fans, and an electric water pump. w/ a 180 degree stat, and the e-water pump, I can pretty much regualte the temps at either 170, or 180, or 190, without turning the fans on...
I know I don't run a trubo, but I didn't spend that much either...

you can kinda see everything in this pic..

Cant beat a Lincoln Mark VIII fan for $50 out of the junkyard.
Thin, fits perfect with a little trimming and blows like mo-fo

Parts store replacement fan for a '93 Mercury Sable w/3.8L engine (~$100) and a DC Control 60A fan controller.

Brian at DC Control is way backed up on putting out those fan controllers tho, so if you order one, you will be waiting 2+ months like I had to.

What did your setup cost you? Looks good!

I got a good deal on the radiator, But summit sells for about 500 and the fan is about 200 new. I had to get brackets welded on to the radiator for the fan to bolt up (just for a cleaner look)

Summit aluminum radiatior 159
Mark VIII fan from junkyard 17
3G alt from junkyard 20
Bosch relay 30
summit fan controller

Works awesome. Note that you need to upgrade the gauge of your alt to solenoid wire if you go with a 3G alt.

Motorsport aluminum radiator with Black Magic Extreme electric fan. Worked good with my N/A HCI combo. Haven't ran it with the turbo long enough to get warm yet, so not sure how it'll do with the extra heat underhood. Should be fine though.

I'd like to get a DCC fan controller, but don't want to wait forever. Probably order it over the winter while the car's hibernating.
