holy crap....i installed it. what a job...
it took me 4 hours to install. in the shop. using air and a hoist.
i installed it in front of the condensor on the driver side. the passenger side has a power steering cooler in the way.
i drilled two holes through the front bumper support in the area i needed. i then used two 4" bolts to shoot through the support and hold onto my cooler, and made two 9" brackets to support the cooler from all 4 mounting spots.
then i ran the electric fan directly from the battery with an inline fuse, through the temp switch then then ground. i used the horn ground since it's right there.
i'll look up a circuit that is powered only when the key is on in my spare time, i just wanted to get it going!! i'll wire in my own if i have too! besides, the thermal switch shuts off the fan once the temp reaches 140F, so it won't run for more than 1min if the engine is off.
routing the extra cooler lines and installing corrugated tubing around all my wires and lines with zip ties making it all pretty took a lot of time. if your not
doing this yourself a shop might take short cuts and not be so meticulous. this thing installed looks very professional. after all, i AM a professional!!
i'd say a shop would probably charge you 4-7 hours labor.
oh, my cooler is about 9" by 9". it's the B&M model 70298
