found it but they didn't really answer my question, i want to know the pros and cons of the mod, i understand that its less wear on the water pump etc etc, but aside from that and extra work room, wat else can i expect?

Pros: More efficient, less work for the engine, more power.
Cons: If you don't get a powerful enough fan you will have heat issues, more maintanence, extra strain on alternator.

It's not hard. Depends on what you think is difficult.

For you probably a 4-6. I had my radiator out already, and was in the process of a major tune-up.

does it need to be mounted to the radiator or can it be in or near the stock location?

p.s. i can do the work if i know wat to do, i jsut ask lots of stupid questions to get fully informed as to waht i'm getting into

The fan sits on the radiator. Held on by either straps, or a braket. It pulls air through the radiator(pull type). You will have to wire it in...Best way would be to tie it into the ignition. You could also just put it on the battery temporarily.

It is really straight forward.

The Flex-lite package comes with a temperature controlled sensor that only kicks on the fan when needed;)
