Do you still have the write up for the intake and throttle body? If so any chance I could get it? Thanks for your time, Mike

Its a lose lose situation...lol

Plus, clutch fans don't go bad and stop cooling.
Just replaced the viscous fan clutch, fan and water pump after 110,000 miles. Engine nearly overheated and a hose blew as the water pump seized. If I had the time and money, the eFan is the only way to go. What a pain it is to tear down to the water pump and replace. An eFan would make the job easier.

Electric fans are a very good mod. Combine 2 16" low amperage e-fans with an adjustable temp. switch. Good combo with the 180 t-stat. What ever you do do not buy one of the over priced combo sets that go from $300 +. I found a good set for $50 a fan and $45 for the temp switch and harness. Most of these fans are low amperage and should not have a problem. They also get rid of the big *** fan shroud and free up alot of working space. All Ive heard are good reviews from ppl that have installed them on their 2nd gens.

Less strain on the engine, frees up horsepower, more working room, not very expensive, I think its a positive mod.

Correct me if I'm wrong but your gear ratio should be located on the inside of your door?

But without the shroud where does the washer and radiator fluid reservoirs go?
