You need close to 2500 cfm to properly cool.but I have had good luck using most factory type electric fans on different models.usually the propblem is when you get a cheap off the shelf type.just make sure it covers most of your radiator.

Summit racing sells really nice fan controllers.they come with hd relay,water sensor with adjustable controller to help dial in the exact temp you want your car to run at.they are around 45$. If you want the part number let me know cause that is what I use.

i put it on my water outlet ( thermostat) housing. i had an extra plugged hole there. i wouldnt put it on the intake because it would be reading engine water temp and not radiator water temp. so either there or if you have a plugged hole on the radiator would work.

i am not sure if something was there originally or not. my car is carbed so the whole engine compartment is completely different than stock. but the original housing that was on there (which had the hole) was not theright housing. it was angled at 45* where the hose attached. so i bought a 90* housing off ebay pretty cheap and it also had the hole.

It's probably to bleed air out of the cooling system.

Just to throw it out there I am using a dual puller fan off of a v6 contour. Works great.

Yes I use a 130 amp alternator. The stock alt is only 90amp or so and isn't enough juice. Check out pa performance they sell alts and kits to convert them there are also junkyard options but I can't remeber which has what. You'll need the alt and a wiring kit. Its pretty simple and works great.
