Default Fan mod

I just went to Advance Auto and bought their aftermarket 16"electric fan rated 2400 cfm ,(anything over 2200 cfm is sufficent for a small v8)installed it with supplied hardware,installed the 18 dollar adjustable controller they had on the shelf set it at 190f ,reinstalled my stock shroud and accessories and that was that.Worked like a charm,total investment under 100 bucks.Still going a year later,cools very efficiently and is alot quieter than those monster dual-fan setups,plus with the stock shroud installed I dont have that big empty space in front of the engine where water and crap can fly into the engine bay,and I keep the benefit of the directed air right into the front of the engine where it cools the most.
