I'm want to upgrade my SP2 fans to SPAL pushers. Does anyone know the amperage load that the SPAL fans pull vs the OEM? Do you upgrade the OEM relay or is the OEM relay robust enough to handle two SPALs?

Thanks

Go the SPAL web site and download their catalog in PDF format.
Search on fans using the SUMITOMO Code 6010-2802 connector (OEM style).
From there, you can select fan size and mounting types.

the relay contacts will be rated well in excess of the fan requirements. chances are they are 15a contacts at a minimum

The fan motor fuse on the SP1 is rated 10A (single fan), and 20A on the SP2 (dual-fan).
So that's the max current draw.
The 4"/82mm SPAL fans pegged for my front-mount radiators only draw 4A max each.
So I doubt the 5" SPAL fans will draw significantly more.
I searched on fans using the SUMITOMO connector and 6.3A was the highest current draw I found.

Awesome. Appreciate the help. I somehow knew Sub was going to have that deep an answer.
Thanks to Wibbly and James as well.
