Second tank results are 16.89mpg I would say the throttle body mod is well worth it.

Been wanting to figure out how to install my electric fan I got off a Mark IV. Like what you did MERF-09 with the overflow and washer fluid tanks!

Thanks
I ran a Lincoln fan till the low speed went out I will take some pics of my current setup it is the same as the setup I used on the Lincoln fan I ran the low speed off the adjustable temp sensor & the high speed off of a Cole Hersee 85 amp continuous duty solenoid. Cole Hersee solenoids are rated for 5 times what the amps say. The Lincoln fan pulled about 100 amps at start up & ran 40 amps at regular speed on high speed.

The first pic is the adjustable Hayden fan relay that triggers the Cole Hersee solenoid second pic is the Cole Hersee solenoid its hooked to the battery positive & negative & then back to the electric fans. I'll see if I can get some more detailed pics.

I know we're off the subject here but did you have to change the alternator to a higher amperage?

No I'm still running the OEM the battery voltage does dip when idling with the air conditioning & the lights & the radio going with the head lights off it does just fine. I have researched a bigger alternator I can run a 160 amp off of a 2001 Durango or the other choice is a Diesel 136 amp the diesel alternator pulls 90 amps at idle were the standard 136 pulls 60 amps at idle. I haven't upgraded yet I'm leaning towards the diesel alternator though that way I don't have to mess with the fuse in the fuse panel under the hood.

I just got my ram, (always had ford rangers) and what is it exactly that cutting down the raised edges does? If it's worth it I i might go for it myself, I'm just not sure of the purpose behind it

Cutting the edges off lets the engine get more air & less restriction of the incoming air.
