Howdy

I have the ef twin thermos on my XE and wanted to tidy up the wiring a bit

My question is - how have others set them up?

Can you run a single bigger relay to power them both?

Or can you set it up so one comes on then the other come on?

Thanks

its best to run one relay and one fusible link per fan, so if for any reason one fan / relay / fusible link does fail, you dont lose all of your cooling.

The relays you can mount anywhere out of the way

^^^ like he said, i have a set on my ef speedway car that are wired from scratch using 2 fuseable links and separate relays, i havent got the thermo switch on yet just single switches but my plan is to wire in a thermo switch to both relays and keep the single switches as overides, and just a tip make sure you use a sutiable gauge wire thoses f**k drain some amps i was testing a pair with a bit of old wire i had kicking about thay melted the coating and burnt my finger
