I have no idea. Some fans pull 20A or more... a 30A relay isn't going to safely drive two of them. Some fans pull only 10A. They're probably labeled, so read the label.

Oh Cre you sure are a smart one. Lol. I plan on reading the label but i havnt received them yet. But i am super excited because it is going to clean up my engine bay really nice. For me being semi new to the Supra world i have to say i never thought i would be this enthusiastic about a car in my life. I only got the car in June with a BHG. And now I've done so much.

Thanks.... I try. I'm still young enough to know everything but old enough to be wrong about all of it... And still young enough to never admit to that last part when it comes up.

The wiring doesn't have to be a nightmare; Do some research and buy the right gauge wire for the job, inline fuses for each fan, additional relays (if needed), and a thermostatic switch. There may be a more complete writeup on here about how to get it done (properly)... I know there was one advocating the use of the A/C's high temp switches which I would ignore but there may be more information posted in that thread which is useful.

My radiator came today but i was wondering about the universal mounting kit that came with. I'm confused about what the springs are for in the kit.

Springs??? No idea. Post a picture... put a penny or ruler with them so we can see the scale.

I figured it out. Its for tension i guess. The guy i ordered it form was missing a zip tie so he refunded me 20 bucks so i could buy a new one. Which only cost me 7 bucks lol. Awesome customer service if you ask me. I'll post pics when I'm done with the install.

For tension? I have no idea what you're talking about or where you propose to put them but if you've got it handled then it doesn't matter.

Alright so everything is hooked up but i still have one problem. The fans are pushing air out of the engine bay rather than pulling air in through the grill. Is that the best way or should it be pulling it in? To reverse that, if i need to, is it as simple as switching the positive and negative?
