electric fan from an 85 corvette in a 73 challenger?

hi guys

I was wondering if I could wire an electric fan from an 85 Corvette into my 73 challenger??? the corvette has the L89 engine with the tuned port setup. it has no belt-driven fan; only an electrical fan.

I wanna do away with the belt-driven fan on my challenger to get less drag on the motor... i plan on getting an electric water pump later on too.


thanks if you can help

Doc here,

If you can make it fit, go for it...but I gotta tell ya..a stock flex fan will provide better cooling..

if flex fans provide better cooling... then why do people use electric fans?

also, the stock fan's RPMs on the challenger obviously increases with the engine RPMs. does the electric fan have to do that too? or does the RPMs for the electric fan stay constant?

thanks for the help
