Its easy...go buy an electric fan yank your fan clutch off and just put the bolts back on to hold the pulley. Some fans come with mounting brackets, figure out a way to get it on the radiator securely. Wire it up with a 30 amp relay, they are easy to hook up just buy one and follow the directions. I shoulda looked around more when I bought mine, I couldve got a dual fan setup for the same price as what I payed for the single. I would go dual, if you have a/c it helps a lot. Summit racing is a good place to find one, or ebay.

I pulled my fan from a 95 tauras. I had to fab my own brackets, but that's cake. Total conversion cost me $35 for the fan, fan relay with thermostat, and fuse with block. Took about 1hr to convert.

And a 2-3 mpg gain as well. I know my fan clutch was shot so it really helped in my situation.
