This may be over kill for one fan, but I used the SPAl PWM controller on my dual setup. It was easy to install and I like the fact that it runs the fan at low speed most of the time. Keeps the noise down.

On my "98 Astro with a '99 LS1 I used stock dual radiators from a '97 Z28 Camero as well as the Cameros dual relays. Of course on this deal the LS1s computer was used and had a port to run the relays.

Only thing is that I'd install the probe in the head rather than the rad fins. I found too much of a temp inconsistency until mounting in it the head. Easy enuf to do using a 1/4" plumbing compression bushing/fitting.
