I have an OE looking switch to bypass the fan, using the ECT circuit also. Off= normal operation. On= fan on. Why I did this was to "charge cool" the coolant while waiting in line to do another run at an Autox. Start run with hot coolant and thermostat fully open, not good. Start run with cool coolant and partially closed thermostat, better IMO.

To have it always on is not good, you want the car to be at its operating temp, and I'm not sure if the alternator can keep up with the fan load.

I'd post a pic, but photobucket is down right now.

Thanks. My friends thought the same, so two peeps here are rocking the same setup, and I need to meet up with 2TGEU to knock out his (and did it already to his 86 corolla along with the elec. fan conversion, man I like his setup).

We gotta meet up sometime, I can show you how to do it, or do it for you (though you know the harness and wire lay out better than I do), and you can look over the Tc. Haha, that Tc has been a test car lately, already has two "firsts" done to it, whats another one? haha.
