You would have to reverse the power/grounds to the fans. Not sure why you want to do this... It would cause the coolant temps to rise as you are moving VERY hot under hood air thru it....

If you are wanting to vent under hood air, you would gain more by just opening the hood...

I wanted it for when I am at the track. However I tested it today and I am very surprise to how much it cooled within 20 minutes(from around 195 to 154). I just tested cooling the car with just the hood open and it has only cooled down to 184 in an hour.

Guess I don't understand what you are trying to accomplish and your term "reverse" the fans then...

If you are just talking about making the fans run after you shut off the engine or not moving, that's a whole different look at it....

Either way, glad it is doing what you want.

I guess I should have been more clear lol. I want to be able to cool the car down between runs. I hooked one fan up to a switch. I notice it was pulling through the radiator which is fine when you are going down the road. I didnt think it would cool as well when parked between runs. But however when I tested it yesterday it performed quite well. I have always had fans that blow through the radiator not pull through it.

Whether the fans are pushers or pullers, the direction of flow is the same, toward the engine. So as not to fight natural flow when the car is in motion.

FYI, Pullers (fans that draw or pull air rather than push) are more efficient....

Yup, there is a surface blow back and pressure tension area when a fan is set to push air thru something like a radiator.... Not much difference when there is nothing to impede air flow, like a house fan...
