    Blackbear, NelsonPerformance and PCM4Less have wiring harnesses. Check out there websites.

    cant i just find a wrecked 2005 and up and take the fans and wiring to it... i do not want to reprogram the cpu like some of these sites recommend... i thought this would be easy.

    The ecm is what turns the fans off and on. Look at some aftermarket companies like Flex-a-Lite for dual fan kits.

    I've been looking into it for my 98, Been told one from a Lincoln MarkVIII moves alot of air and is easy to install.

    Ford Taurus 3.8L is the highest flowing factory installed electric fan you can buy. and use a wiring harness as recommended.

    Does the Taurus have a dual fan? Or single like the big Lincoln
