electric fan qustions

Ok I have a 99 4.7 and want to do away with the mech setup.I have dual electric fans off a Subaru wrx I am pretty sure they are 3 speeds. I have never converted anything to e fans so I was wondering do I need the shroud? and what is the best way to wire these up? I searched on here and alot of ppl use traus fans but I am positive that these are more powerful but there 3 speed thanks

people use the Taurus fan because it's shroud covers the WJ radiator.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SHROUD THAT COVERS 80-90% OF THE RADIATOR.

what are the measurements from the Subaru fans?

I want to do this too. I am going to use a flex-a-lite model 180 black magic fan. My question is can I use the existing fan relay and wiring to make the new fan work? I know the fuse can handle it.

I had installed a Taurus/Sable fan in an old chevy truck i had. They are 2 speed and move alot of air. I never needed the highest speed. Best part is they are cheap and available at most junk yards. I think i paid 20 bucks.
