ok so my 94 stx has 2 puller fans, but the secondary fan went. so here are my options.

option 1, if my friend i gave a bunch of my 5th gen parts has any fans im either going to bolt it up or swap motors, but it will be free

option 2, get a used oem seconardy fan from the junkyard, the lowest milage one i found had 170,000 miles on it and will cost me 50 dollars, this was the cheapest one i found.

option 3, which im liking better than 2, is to go to an auto parts place and get a universal 10 inch fan that moves 1000 cfm for 50-55 dollars and wire it in to the stock plug so that its plug and play

would option 3 be ok and 1000 cfm should be plenty air to move, correct?

yes it be fine. then fans here are 12 dollars, wtf did you find a 50 dollar junkyard fan?

all the junkyards around here that have anything decent in em are expensive

cant find any under 200,000 mile 6th gens at all and they are getting scarce

so i got a new 12 inch fan for 65, one less used part to worry about failing

its a imperial 226112 800cfm reversible fan, guess it will be better than running only 1 fan
