II just did it to two spfi ea82's and wired it into the a/c fan relay (and took the right side fan off the a/c relay) so now right side fan runs with radiator thermo switch or manual switch and left side ea81 fan runs with a/c fan relay or manual switch.
Only disadvantage is the ea81 fan is not all that powerfull - it only uses about 90 watts of power (6a @ 14v) instead of the 120w that the right fan uses. (If anyone reading this knows of another JY obtainable fan that is less than 2.5" thick that will work for the left side of ea82s, please let me know.)
I've havn't clocked too many miles on them yet, but on 90-95 degree days with the a/c off, neither fan runs as long as I'm moving at 25-30 mph with only minimal slow downs (stop signs). With the a/c on at freeway speeds (and 95 degree day), left side fans run when a/c systems tells them to - usually when a/c comp. is running and the right side fan doesn't run at all unless I'm going up a significant hill and then I might get 2/3 to the red. I usually turn the a/c off on a long uphill though because the a/c takes too much power and slows me down.
