INTERCOOLER FAN

I mounted an A/C cooling fan over my intercooler. It was very easy and only took a few minutes. I relocated the horns, twisted the frame that holds the fan slightly, and mounted it. The power leads are very straightforward. The black fan wire can ground on the frame of the fan itself and the blue lead can go to the interior to a switch or to another wire that is switched on with the ignition.

You can mount the frame with one 10 mm bolt that holds the intercooler in place on the left, and the other side can be held in place with the 12 mm bolt that held one of the horns. You will have to slightly twist the frame to get the 12 mm bolt lined up with it.

I can really feel a lot of cool air coming through the other side of the intercooler when the fan is on. It is not big enough to be a restriction when you're moving fast enough not to need it. When you do need it, like when you have to stop often at low speeds, you will find it is well worth the 30 minutes it takes to install.

IC fan switch

I mounted an on/off lighted rocker type switch on the seat. I ran the wires under the step guard and along with the seat control wires. There is plenty of room for more switches here and they don't get in the way at all or clutter up the dash and look tacky. I wired this one so that when it is on, the light on the switch is on and in case I forget to turn the fan off, power is cut with the ignition.
