all the MS does is activate the stock fan relay. it would be the relay that would burn out if there was too much power drawn from it. but in my experience there shouldn't be any issues with two fans.

Ok, the coolant lines have to be re-routed. Forgive me for saying it, but it looks ugly. On the coolant line near the frame, move the 90 fitting to the distribution block and the straight fitting at the turbo. Route the oil supply line by the engine block and not the firewall. I will also send you a another 90 to use on the other coolant line to run it downward. See the pictures below.
