5096Re: [bmw e28] Re: E28 electric fan setup
- Aug 16, 2007Here's the question: Does any one know of a company that sells an electric fan(s) kit for an e28?
It's definitely a given that electric fans cool better (especially at low speed or a stopped idle) and pull less power from the engine (higher hp). Alot of people have been switching them on all sorts of vehicles (including hotrods). The only question is: is there a kit that I can install to get the job done. I've seen this done many times just not with E28's. I'm talking about pulling the factory fan and shroud and then installing 1-2 electric fans including a shroud that fits the fans. Removing the factory fan completely. I'm not talking about the axillary fan. You'd never have to deal with another fan clutch replacement.

The clutch fan is generally engaged at lower speeds ( city ) and saves engine power at
highy speeds when not needed as much. Electric fan in front is a type of auxillary fan for
addional cooling, AC condensor/usage, city driving, idiling, and even after shut-off when
I would be cautious of "Jerry-rigging" your BMW, unless you have researched this, and
discovered an improvement. My best advice is to maintain your current system, read
Larry's advice on BMW anti-freeze, replace clutch-fan with OEM product, etc ...
