Re: electric fans

you can go to Canadian tire and get one for around 100. Reading the box it recommends 2 for 8cyl and up... I was thinking of putting 1 in and seeing what happens and then add a second if needed

Re: electric fans

do a search, its been tried before, and works ok unless your towing IIRC. I think most went back to the stock fan.

Re: electric fans

Welcome to PSN....

Wrecking yard twin Taurus two speed fans will work. There are a number of DIY systems guys have done over the years. Generally if you tow much stock is the way to go. Few guys have done electric clutches too such as the 6.0 clutch (I think) and others (just can't remember the clutch manufacturer name).

Do a search on here there is lots of chatter and ideas about it. Again if you tow much stock is the way to go.

What mods on your truck and what is the intended use?

Re: electric fans

When you next service your K&N check to see if there is any light dust residue inside intake hose next the turbo. K&N make good products and I have used them on a number of vehicles ( Wife's Honda CRV and currently on Honda ATV), so not hating. Used to have a 7" Dia (round) by 9" long one on my '96 7.3 and I always had a little dust residue. Removed it put on a Donaldson paper element filter.....no dust what so ever....

just sayin to be careful and check it, also depends where you drive...

Re: electric fans

Goes right on the tube almost like it was made for it. I have since removed the heat shield as I don't think it really does anything for it.
