This replacement fan for the Chevy SSR is built from GM P/N 15819952 (Corvette Z-06 fan) and drops directly into the existing brackets on the radiator. Airflow improvement above the OEM fan is 20% on low speed and 50% on high speed. The shrouded blade and open structure of the fan housing offers the performance of a shroud at low speed and the advantage of an open back at high speed. This fan is NOT a foreign-made clone. It is created from a genuine GM (Delphi) fan and uses only the highest quality components available.
All wiring is built to the highest standards. The two speed functionality of this fan follows the original SSR system design and is significantly robust with increased airflow. Inrush (startup) current to the new fan is 30% higher than the OEM unit and requires connection of the additional power and ground to the SSR electrical system. Installation is simple and can be done in less than about 20 minutes…. even for a novice. Fits all years. Airflow through the SSR radiator was measured at 2850 cfm in a small wind tunnel.
Note: If you are pulling a trailer or are subjecting the SSR to long steep hills, the optional “Manual Override Option” is a consideration. This will allow you to add a cabin mounted switch to turn the main cooling fan to high speed manually at any time.
The fan is shipped complete and ready to install with no additional hardware required. The MFK-2 fits into the existing space with no conflicts, even on the 03-04. It connects directly to the existing 3-pin fan wiring harness and has additional / separate power and ground connections. The MFK-2 is directly compatible with either the OEM radiator or the thicker upgraded one offered here.
Please check to see if you need the added option for a new (vehicle side) connector to the wiring harness. This option will let you replace a damaged connector when you install the new fan. Having a good connection is paramount, since this fan draws 33 amps continuous when on high speed. Please inspect your three pin connector to be sure it has not been melted or compromised.
This fan is “built to order” and your fan will get put into the fabrication queue when ordered. “In Stock” means that I have all the parts on hand to build one for you.
NOTE: If you require expedited fabrication and shipping – your SSR is disabled and it’s your daily driver, etc. – please note that in the “Order Note” section when you checkout. (May incur additional shipping costs.) I will contact you directly to discuss your options.
