    Cool. I thought you already had. I'm up in the South Bay, about 90 minutes north of SD. Casey/Mark/JP Hermes/Bimmeryota (Joe), and others are down in SD.

    Hmmm....

    Might have to figure something out. I'm coming from Vegas so it's doable. My wife loves California so a trip down is always easy to do. Maybe a mini SIGFest?

    Always up for that. We have a spare room. Kids bunk up and you can have my oldest's... small, but a queen size bed. We can wrench for a day, then head down to SD for a day. I'd prolly head back up and guessing you'd stay for you wife's event. (or do it some other time).

    Anybody from the Mafia ever did this(steptronics) ?

    I will be refreshing/overhauling my cooling system and Ive been planning this switch for the longest...

    I just thought it will be a good combo (cooling refresh + electric fan)...

    Anyway, just in case you havent used BMAParts.com, try them, they have the best prices and lightning fast shipping...

    Can anybody please confirm if im looking at the correct electric fan from BMAParts.com?

    It looks the same but not positive. Basically do a search for 2000-2005 with a manual tranny. Here are a few links I have bookmarked.

    Finally done with this conversion...

    My initial impression is my car's a tad peppier now, im actually surprised the first time i stepped on the gas (i havent driven it for almost 3 weeks)

    I wrapped up everything 3am this morning (Installed Enco B146, OFHG, Cooling system refresh, and this) so i havent really
    driven my car again that much...

    If you are in the fence on this one, i would say go ahead and do it, its not too expensive anyway, ~$185 at BMAParts.com

    Installation is very easy.
