the fan delete kit comes with a lower thermostat, lower a/c fan switch and there you go. put in some water wetter in your rad and your good to go.

you need to take off the fan clutch and replace that with a big nut. then you need to change the thermo and change the temp switch that is on the side of the rad near the reserve tank. and you should also add water wetter in your coolant to make it run cooler. thats it

You don't need a big nut, you can just leave the threads bare, or use electric tape to cover them up or whatever.

The fan delete mod is more of an I6 mod. With the 318's, you do need another electric fan.
