Ya I think you can just move it back if that is at all possible.When I did my swap I saw that there is no room unless the A/C compressor is ethier removed or loosend and moved closer to the shock tower.

The connecter for the fan is on the fan itself.Pressure test your cooling system for leaks.Change your Tstat and check to see if the fan is even engaging.

well.. just relized that the fan doesnt turn on unless i turn on the ac... could this have happened when we unbolted the compressor to get cps in... now the car overheats without the ac on... what should i do?

check your coolant temp sensor. the one that the computer uses. thats basically your temp switch that turns ur fan on and off... In my experience with the conditions you describe, at least 8 out of ten times it's that sensor... less than one in ten is a bad ECM... some cars (not sure about yours) have two or three seperate relays that also have to be good to run the fan... i would start with checking the temp sensor, then relays, then the ECM. Could it be possible that you unplugged a temp sensor and maybe forgot to plug it in? I've done that before, just a thought... good luck and keep us posted man.
