    I got a fan from the junk yard.. Its off a 95' Mustang.. and it turn about 10,000 rpm's :rofl:.. I hadnt got to use it on anything yet.. But it blows some air big time.. So something off a newer V8 ride should do very well...

    the ford fan you are probally reffering to is the taurus/ merc sable/ lincoln fan. it pulls an amazing 5000 cfm, but runs off very high current. you might be fine with a permacool 14 inch 2900 cfm fan. it is 83 bucks, and only pulls about 8 amps i think.you can get it from jegs or summit. this is probally the best aftermarket fan. the ford fan will have to be found at a junk yard, or ordered from a parts store. the price can vary from 30 bucks to 250 bucks. depends on how hot your engine is gonna be really.

    yo man get yourself one off a 90 and up corvette, the wiring will be much esasir to do on a blazer, than a mustang on to a chevy.

    i was trying to say, to Low87JIMMY, that if he could get an electrical fan off a 90 and up corvette, it would be a much easier install than doing a ford to a chevy. my boy tried to use one off an 94 mustang, on his blazer and he had a hella of a lot of trouble to get it to mount and wire up. just trying ot say to stick with a chevy fan.......

    The point I was making is tell me the difference in trying to wire up the chevy fan rather than the ford fan or for that matter mounting either one.

    Wiring on a fan.....

    Hmmmmm...

    12v power plus 1 ground.....

    How are ford fans different? Unless they have a relay built in. That would make the wiring easier anyways.
