Electric fans are THE way to go in my opinion. They do what thermostatic fan clutches try to do without the limitations other have.
An electric fan moves air at the best of its ability, no matter what the engine speed happens to be. So setting in traffic on a hot summer day is not a problem because your cooling fan is moving its maximum amount of air even tho the engine is at idle.
Now, however....most people screw up electric fan installation.
Not to the point to say they don't work, but in my opinion they don't work at the best of their abilities.
The signal to turn the fans on should come from a thermostatic control set to just above the engine's normal operating temperature. That way cruseing down the road the fans are OFF because you have plenty of air flowing over the radiator. This will also contribute to an increase in fuel mileage. (Be it a small one)
But none the less either way you decide to wire them up they cool much better than stock, and I think you'll be very happy with them.
