Easy 09+ E Fan swap!!!
 
Found this on another forum...definately stealing and sharing!

The V6 trucks come with a real E Fan, not the smaller A/C fan, and it mounts directly to the radiator using the same mounts we Hemi guys have. It also plugs directly into the A/C fan plug. It also eliminates the mechanical fan, so you don't have that crank drag anymore! It's on MGH's twin turbo ram and works great. I am going to order one soon and post up pics of it!

I noticed with the Vararam blocking the top part of the radiator, the 180 T-stat and now a good E-fan is essential! Can't wait to have MY pics up!

The fan part number is 55056851AF, retail 222.00, I saw it online for 152.

Nice. Will be something I look into down the road.

Cool! Is this something that's really necessary? I'd like to know cfm ratings for each to see if it's worth spending the money. I haven't seen anyone complain about cooling issues with the mechanical fan removal, but cool mod either way. Get's rid of the massive shroud too lol (room for turbo :) )

Good find! Not a mod I was intending.....but never were most of the mods I did. :hah:

Very good find. What site are you getting the fan from?

916Timmy 12-23-2011 11:14 AM

Not sure yet, probably Steve White Parts. I ordered some stuff from them, great prices and service

very nice...and if I didn't know any better, that might fit the 3rd gens as well...

916Timmy 12-23-2011 12:11 PM

I think it is less than an inch off height and width. Best part is the 150 price tag and full plug and play :)

snrusnak 12-23-2011 12:11 PM

It's sort of deceiving in the pic, do you know how it compares to the stock fan? It looks like it is taller and thinner, but hard to tell...

916Timmy 12-23-2011 12:14 PM

Same width, taller shroud, larger fan and thinner design
