AAW has an upgrade kit that uses newer style fuses.
It can be used to replace the old fuses, add-on or run a parallel circuit.

Call Donny at AAW

Tell him Team Camaro sent you..

You can also bring a hot wire off the starter and add another fuse panel. Be sure to use a large enough wire to power the panel. Nobody likes a fire.

You should be using relays for any high draw items, like fans. If you are using relays, the switched side pulls very little power.
