    Cool My Project! E-Fans on my 6.0 Savana Cargo

    I've been searching around if somebody did already converting their savana mechanical fan to efans which i cant seem to find at least one. So i read a lot on other forums that convert to efans which gave me an idea. Below is the parts that i needed to complete it:

    1. OEM Dual Fan from Chevy silverado 05-06 = Cost me $100 from craiglist
    2. OEM Wire Harness #15912597 for the fans and included is the fan relay switch. = Cost $194.61 ordered it since i cant find anything on ebay/net or junk yard.
    3. Need my PCM/ECM tuned to turn on C1= Pin 42 low speed cooling fan and Pin #33 high speed cooling fan. This cost $200 but i am still thinking about if either i need to have it tuned or will buy my own tuning software which is cost $650 for hptuners or $800 for efilive.

    I have the 34 inch radiator fan that fits exactly but it needs to be custom mounted which i did. I'll attach a picture here tomorrow.

    Below is the picture of the oem fans from chevy silverado which fits perfectly on my savana radiator. I cut 90% of the existing fan shroud that hold the radiator and used that one to hold the dual fans. More pics to come.

    Update:

    Finally they ship out the oem wire harness for the efan which i expect to be delivered on August 5. I finally decided to purchase a tuning software from efilive than have it tuned, it will be delivered as well next week on thursday. Lastly the two pin for #33 and #42 which i oredered on ebay which comes 25 pcs. I expect that one come also next week friday. But anyway when putting it back the coolant reservoir and air filter unit it doesnt fit since the fans are on its way so i cut some top portion on the efan.

    Since i got off early from work, i work on my van and remove the ecm harness and i broke the protector ehehehe, i just want to have it ready for next week. I needed to remove the driver side headlamp to easily work on the ecm harness. There is a help on how to add/remove pin, go to youtube and type ls1 pcm pin. Pictures below. I have all the wiring diagrams here on my computer but its a large file which i cant attach it since it doesnt let me.Click image for larger version.

    All i can say is my project is SUCCESS! I should have posted this last week but i got into troubles. All the oem fan relay and harness has been placed but overall its worth it. I placed the fan relay and zip tie it that holds the gutter of the pcm. The red wire was placed on the underhood fuse box which is perfect since u can bolt it to the existing red wire that comes from the battery. The ground wire was placed under the engine which is the ground as well for the AC compressor. The green/blue need to be connected to the pcm, did not cut it i just grab the connector on the existing harness that comes with it on the fan relay which is the black, green and brown. As u can see which i made a mistake the black green should suppose to be on the Blue PCM on 42, and the Brown should be on the Green PCM #33. Thats why when i start the car the fans run high when it should not be running and should be running in low when the temperature has been reached. Lastly the pcm needed to be program to the desired level of temp so that the fan comes on low and high.Click image for larger version.

    Lastly when you want the pcm to be programmed you need to have AC parameters set to to control FAN #2 NOT auto recirculation failing to do this you will hear the fan relay click when the high temp reaches and your fan will not work on high and will stay the same on low.

    If anybody wants to do this as well and have any question dont hesitate to ask.

    I uploaded this to another forum which i want to share this mods that i did to my savana cargo van, Of course there is a performance gains when i switch to efans, since the clutch fan has been removed i gain a little bit horsepower, the very good side it cools very well the engine as well the AC blows cold.
