Re: Wiring fans to both come on for AC or Engine

it's fine to use the infinitybox to run fans as long as you're under the amp limit.

My sl-c has been using it for fans just fine since 2010

and it controls 4 fans on my 917

Re: Has anyone ever gotten a Griffin transaxle......

I have a 700hp LS3 mated to a 930. No problems, would use the transaxle again, nice and compact/lightweight.

I believe it's a KEP Stage 2 clutch.
