Re: electric fan worth the time or money

It's nowhere near 10,000cfm

If you only tow light and wanna free up a few hp then go for it. If you tow heavy then pass on them. Most kits you can buy use dual fans.

Spending money I don't have on crap I don't need to impress people I don't know.

Re: electric fan worth the time or money

i do
but it is just to enhance the AC in summer at stop lights
I also have the snowplow fan clutch ready to install ( AKA the AZ fan clutch)

it is a little more active than the regular clutch because the snowplow blade blocks air flow

Re: electric fan worth the time or money

Zirgo makes a single 16" at 3630cfm
A pair of those would likely handle any heavy towing a person would do short of a hot shot driver pulling max gvwr every day.
My twin 16" fans pull about 5000 cfm combined and have never let me down towing up around 6000 lbs.
