No other fans are needed. The 3G has dual internal fans, one at the front and one at the back, unlike the stock alt, which has just one external fan at the front. If you wire the 3G as outlined in the tech article, you wont have any overheating / fire problems. I have had my 3G in for almost 2 years, and I have felt the alt itself and the wiring during periods of high electrical demand (headlights / fog lights on, A/C running, both cooling fans on, etc, and the wiring never even gets warm. Neon (kind of ricey, IMO) doesnt draw that much power, so that isnt a concern. With any high powered stereo, I suggest you get one of those Lightning Capacitors... about 1/2 Farad for every 500W of power, to keep your lights from dimming in those bass punches.
